Remote Homeschool Camp

Because little ninjas are not good coworkers!

To All Our Chamberlain Studios Karate Families,

I hope this email finds you and your families doing well and staying healthy amid the Covid-19 Pandemic! We are at the end of Summer 2020, and with the announcement today about DISD running the first 4 weeks of school Online only (and for those of you choosing to home school your children) we wanted to reach out to you regarding the Fall 2020 Semester and what Chamberlain Studios of Self Defense is able to offer for your children!


Starting September 8th, if your child is doing distance learning, and you choose not to keep them at home, we are offering “Remote Home School Camps”! This gives your kids a safe place to go during the day. Camp sizes will be small, and kids will have the opportunity to do their schoolwork/zoom calls, etc, but will also have morning & afternoon sessions of karate (ie – physical activity!).

Please share this information with your friends, and remember due to smaller class these will fill quickly!

Registration for this is now available:


We have After School Karate for your kids These memberships include one 15 minute online private lesson each week for your child!

Register online here for this program:

For those students who participated in after school programs at their school (such as Mockingbird, Greenhill, Good Shepherd, etc), these programs will restart as conditions allow. In the meantime, train with us at the dojos or on Zoom!

During the Covid-19 shutdown and restrictions, Chamberlain Studios has become experts at interactive Zoom online group classes, private lessons, and even belt tests for our students! We have also been successfully running COMBINED Zoom online & in-person classes, outdoor classes in the park and summer camps in our dojos!

We look forward to seeing you in class! For more information about these programs, please visit our website here: or email us at

Kids’ Belt Test

Once your child has earned all 6 colored stripes on their belt (Blue, Red, Green, Yellow, White & Black), they will be invited by their instructor to test. If you have questions regarding your child’s readiness to test, please speak with your child’s primary instructor or send us a message at:

Remember that the Student Portal has video instruction for most curriculum techniques & kata (forms), and more are being added weekly. This is a great resource for your kids to review their skills before the test. Also, don’t forget to schedule their weekly 15min Online Private lessons!

Blue Stripe = Kata (forms)
Red Stripe = Punch Defenses
Green Stripe = Grab Defenses
Yellow Stripe = Weapon Defenses
White Stripe = Book Reports & Vocabulary
Black Stripe = Grappling

We will be closed Monday, September 7, 2020 for Labor Day. Classes will resume with a new schedule on September 8!

New Schedule, Effective 9/8!

A new revised schedule is launching on September 8! The main change is that we are offering additional outdoor kids’ classes at Tietze Park on Thursday evenings, but we will continue to hold indoor and Zoom classes as well at the same time.
