The Resobox Art Gallery in Long Island City offers traditional karate classes every Saturday  for both beginners and advanced learners. Led by Isami Shiroma, a certified instructor with the Japan Karate Association (JKA), the classes emphasize form, not fighting.

The class costs $100 for adults, $80 for children (up to 18-years-old), and a visitor fee will be $20 a class. Initiation fee, which includes insurance, is $40 for the year.
