Lee United Methodist Church is offering karate lessons to students three times a week at the church’s fellowship hall.
Taught by Mike Mosier, the classes are held each Tuesday and Thursday, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10:30-noon.
Mike is assisted with the classes by his wife, Candice, and Tammy Voss, the church’s secretary, also serves as secretary of the classes. Testing for belts is given by Tom Zimberly, an eight degree grand master in the art of dang-soo-do, the karate form which tae kwan do originated from.
Students in the class include people of all ages. Barbara Moore, the youth coordinator at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, recently joined the class. Mike said that he enjoys teaching all the students, including those who may have physical or mental disabilities.
The cost to join is $10 a month and the price includes a free karate uniform. To register, please call Mike Mosier at (850) 491-5061 or Tammy Voss at (850) 971-5585.
