Quantum Martial Arts’ summer day camps plan to meet in-person at the San Francisco Dojo during the 3-week sessions of June 7–25, 2021 and July 19–August 6, 2021. The three-week stable cohort is the minimum commitment required by the SF Dept. of Health for youth summer camps during the pandemic. During the in-person cohorts, all required Dept. of Health COVID protection measures will be followed to prioritize the health and safety of students, staff, volunteers, families, and our extended community.

Karate Camp

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

When: Camp will take place in two distinct 3-week sessions; June 7–25, 2021 and July 19–August 6, 2021. Each session will be hosted Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m.– 3:00 p.m.

What: Karate Camp at Quantum Martial Arts exposes campers to a different style of martial arts each week of the camp. Campers will learn techniques and philosophy of Tae Kwon Do, Wing Chun, Judo, 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.

Tuition: The price for the 3-week camp is $1,350. This tuition includes a 2021 summer camp t-shirt, but does not include a martial arts uniform, available for purchase at the Dojo for $50. Students are also welcome to wear their own uniform.

Future Camp Offering: Superhero Stunts “Stage Combat” Camp

*** This camp will not be offered summer of 2021, but we plan to return to stage combat camp Summer of 2022. ***

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

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.
