Beginner Karate

Kids · Wellness
Karate empowers children to be focused and aware of themselves in their environments, be kind and respectful of others and, ultimately be responsible and empowered leaders in the world.

Students are trained in traditional Japanese karate kata. Through the rigors of this training system they develop strength, agility, and a physical intelligence that is relevant everywhere in their lives. All of this is carried out in an atmosphere of enthusiasm and cooperation. This class is best for ages six and above.

Sensei Zelda Gay

She obtained her Black Belt in 2006 under the guidance and direction of her mother, Shihan Michelle Gay. Karate-Do Ken Wa Kan is a family owned and run business and Karate is a lifelong family love affair!

Though she took a hiatus during high school, she returned to training and teaching during her summers home from Emerson College where she studied Acting & Fight Choreography. After graduating, Sensei Zelda returned to rigorously developing herself as a Martial Artist. Since 2010, she has become a competitive Knockdown Fighter & International Karate competitor. She earned the title of Sensei when her first students became Black Belts in 2019. When not teaching at Ken Wa Kan, she works as the C.E.O of Self Offense, a company she owns with Shihan Michelle that is working to end sexual assault and harassment in the world.
