Dojo Closed Tuesday, March 14th!

Due to the impending storm and the fact that the Montclair Office of Emergency Management has declared a state of emergency for tomorrow the dojo will be closed for all classes tomorrow. The forecast is currently 20″-24″ of snow and the safety of all of our students and families is the most important thing to us.

Congratulations are due to all of Team Montclair as you all did fantastic in the tournament Saturday! If you have some photos of the event we would love to post some of them electronically as well as at the dojo. You can send them to Sempai Chris at

Please stay safe and warm during the storm!

Best wishes always,

All of us at Montclair Shukokai Karate
