Wake Forest Christian Karate & Kobudo

Raleigh - Wake Forest Christian Karate Logo Patch

Raleigh and Wake Forest Christian Karate & Kobudo is taught by Jennifer Sweatte. Jennifer is a 4th Degree Black Belt in Matsumura Shorin Ryu Karate and Kobudo. Jennifer is also a member of  Richland Creek Community Church.

Our hope is that this class will provide students with practical Self-Defense and Karate techniques, and also help develop character and integrity.  The goal of karate is not to learn how to fight, but how not to fight. Learning how to control a situation and not let it control you.
