Special guest this year at Summer Club – Miho Takahashi

Only 6 weeks until Miho is here for Summer Club!!!

We have only five spots left for each summer session so please be sure to save your spot if you’re looking for an activity to fill their summer with fun, learning and exercise! Here’s some pictures of Miho and the games she plays with her Japanese students.

It’s going to be a really special experience for our students this July and August during Summer Club. We hope your child has the opportunity to join us for one or both weeks this summer!

Dear students and families,

We are THRILLED to announce a special guest that will be joining us at Summer Club this year!

Miho Takahashi was born in Japan, where she studied Japanese language education from one of the most prominent Japanese language scholars, Dr. Miyaji. She’s taught Japanese at the University of Oklahoma as well as taught business professionals as well as lawyers and university professors privately for over 15 years. She now owns North Shore Japanese Language Education and Services in Beverly and offers her language and cultural education services to students.

We’re so excited to have her as our special guest this year at Summer Club! She will be teaching the kids a wide variety of Japanese topics including:
Japanese Kanji (including your child’s name)

  • Language (greetings, numbers, colors and self-introductions)
  • Geography
  • Food & Chopsticks
  • Games (Sumo, Jan Ken Pon (Rock Paper Scissor) and origami)
  • Body & Face

We can’t wait for our July and August session of Summer Club this year and certainly hope you can join us for these very special events. We still have a handful of openings in both sessions, so if you’re interested and not yet registered, please email us or let us know next time you’re in the dojo. Space is limited, and we expect the camp to fill up, so please don’t wait if you’d like to reserve a spot for your child. Have a wonderful day and we will see you soon!

Sincerely,

The Authentic Karate Training Center Staff
