NEW Class Location Starting MON, Nov 5, 2018:

posted Nov 5, 2018, 10:22 AM by Jodi Nelson   [ updated Nov 5, 2018, 12:11 PM ]

During the winter months, the Roswell Yoshukai Karate Class will move from the CAB at the Roswell Parks & Recreation to the Crabapple Middle School (in the gym) on Crabapple Road, Roswell, GA. Drive through the school main driveway entrance, drive straight to the parking area, walk thru the main entrance (with the awning) and the gym is down the hall on the right [someone will be standing at the door to guide everyone in the first night].  The new winter home location is very close to our current class location.

Crabapple Middle School
10700 Crabapple Road
Roswell, GA 30075


Crabapple Middle School is very gracious in allowing us to use their school facility to continue our karate training. It is most definitely a privilege for our class to use the school as a dojo; not a right! As such, there are many rules that we need to follow to ensure that we can continue to use this location for future classes.
  • First and foremost, do not park anywhere except the designated area. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you park in any "pick up/drop off /fire safety" marked zones. 
  • Do Not walk through the school to arrive at the training location. If you have questions, be sure to ask in class prior to the move to Crabapple Middle School.
  • Do Not leave trash at the school.  Always leave it cleaner than when you arrive.
  • Do Not leave ANY Weapons behind after class.
