Martial Arts Summer Camps

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and strict guidelines released by the City of San Francisco Health Department, we are not able to offer any summer camp programming in 2020. All previously scheduled single-week camps for 2020 have been cancelled.

We hope to be back with our regular summer camp programming in 2021. You are welcome to read below about the summer camps we have offered in the past and hope to offer again next year.

If you are interested in weekly martial arts classes for youth or adults, currently offered online six days a week via Zoom, please get in touch via our contact form to start the conversation.

Karate Camp

What: Karate Camp at Quantum Martial Arts exposes campers to a different style of martial arts each day of the camp. Campers will learn techniques and philosophy of Tae Kwon Do, Wing Chun, Judo, Arnis, and practical self-defense strategies. They’ll also develop social skills within the martial arts tenet system of courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and indomitable spirit.

Movement skills games like tug-of-war, trust falls, dodge ball, tag, capture-the-flag, obstacle courses, parkour, tumbling, gymnastics, and board breaking will keep kids actively learning about their bodies, developing physical coordination and stamina, all while having fun. We’ll also watch some famous clips of the coolest martial arts film fight scenes including Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and Donnie Yen.

Lunch field trips and some game activities will take place each day at Dolores Park or Mission Playground.

In addition to camps, Quantum Martial Arts offers karate classes for kids and teens six days a week.

Who: Open to ages 6–14, no experience necessary!

Superhero Stunts “Stage Combat” Camp

What: Stunts! Drama! Action! In this martial arts camp, kids will create superhero characters and learn how to coordinate and perform stunt work and battle scenes that look cool while staying super safe. We’ll watch some classic and fun fight scenes from popular movies (including Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and Donnie Yen), and break down the behind-the-scenes work that goes into performing action stunts.

Interspersed with karate games and lessons, kids will work in pairs and small groups to write and choreograph their very own superhero battle scene skits to perform and film by the end of the week. Kids will learn punches, kicks, blocks, footwork, combinations, fake falls, parkour, and tumbling in the course of creating their action scenes. Creating the skits will also involve character development, costuming, directing, peer feedback, teamwork, and acting.

In addition to camps, Quantum Martial Arts offers karate classes for kids and teens six days a week.

Who: Open to ages 8–14, no experience necessary! This camp will be fun for both beginners and action superstars.
