Remember, students are required to attend karate class twice per week. Please be sure to book your class using the Pallen's Martial Arts Member App. On the dashboard, click on the white bars in the top left corner to open the menu, then select the "My Class Schedule" option and then check in to your class. Or, if you would like to choose another class, simply click on the "+" button located in the bottom right hand corner. You will then be sent reminders of class times as well as the Zoom links if you are signed up for a virtual class. There are only 25 spaces available for each Outdoor In-Person class.
Some classes are being offered indoors at the Pallen's Fitness Center (1660 Washington Ave.), if you would like In-Person training. Indoor classes will be provided with an observation link for parents to watch, but will not contain instructor direction.
If you'd like to sign them up for outdoor classes instead, we will be increasing the capacity of the outdoor mat to 20 students per class.
Outdoor classes may be cancelled due to weather, if they are, these classes will be offered through Zoom.
A new virtual class schedule will offered starting on Tuesday, August 10.
If you would like to stay virtual or switch to virtual classes, that is perfectly acceptable.
Parents and Students: How to sign in and book a class
Students (and/or parents) are now required to sign-in to class using the App in order to track attendance. "Booking" is the same as "signing-up" for a class. Students with the App can "Book" their class inside the class schedule, by simply clicking on the " " button located in the bottom right hand corner, then select your day and class, then click "join." You will then be asked if you would like to join the class, click "yes." A "Confirmed" message will appear, with a "done" button. Click the "done" button. You will then be told that you have a certain number of booking left. These bookings are for the week, you are entitled to 2 In-person classes and 2 Virtual classes per week. Attendance is one of the factors we use in determining if a student qualifies for Tip Testing and Belt Testing. Please take a moment to download the App, if you haven't done so already. Directions can be found in the App section below. Students must first add their classes to their class schedule in the App, and then check in to class up to 5 minutes before the class starts.
It is important that students and/or parents sign-in to class through the App in order for your attendance to be recorded. The App was created primarily to serve this function, and in order to facilitate social distancing. You are able to sign-in to class once you are in the vicinity of the school - even while you are in the car. If you haven't downloaded the App, please see scroll down to the "New Member App" section below.
Parents - please come into the dojo and bring your child to class as well as pick them up after class. Please remember - Only One (1) parent/guardian per student can enter the mat room floor and stay to watch classes. All other family members must either wait in the lobby or in the car. Siblings and/or young children cannot be left unattended in the dojo.
Observation links are not intended to be used as primary classes for students, rather they are to be used as references only. These observation links contain a stationary camera with a view of the entire class and do not provide direct instructor feedback or interaction for the virtual student. Observation links are also for parents to watch their child in class, since parents are not allowed in the dojo. If you would like your child to take a virtual class with Instructor interaction and direction, please choose the virtual classes that DO NOT include "observation link" in the title.
How to Find Recorded Classes for Reference on our website
All of the virtual classes, including the observation links, are recorded and can be used as references. These classes can be found on our website using this link: https://www.pallensmartialarts.com/students.html Click on your class level, ex. "Tigers" or "Freshmen," "Sophomores," etc...

The Farmer's Market on Parrott Street has started and will continue until the Fall. Please be aware that there may be more traffic than usual in our parking lot. You may want to leave your home a little earlier to secure a parking space. Enjoy the sunshine and music at one San Leandro's favorite open air markets!
Wednesday Drop Offs
To avoid crowding the parking lot, we are going to begin having a designated drop off area for our indoor students. This spot will be marked on Wednesdays so that we can ensure the safe and efficient entry of all of our students for the indoor classes. The parking spot directly in front of our front doors will now be a drop off area and no longer be a parking spot. If you’d like to drop off your student and then find parking in the lot, that is acceptable as well. You may then wait in your car or come in to watch class until your student has finished class. Please come inside and pick your child up after class has finished.
Parents - please make sure that your child wears slides or flip flops to Indoor Classes for easy off - easy on convenience. Socks and shoes are not recommended because the children take too much time taking them off and putting them on for class (especially for the little ones) and hold up the attendance and dismissal process. Thank you for your cooperation.
Please make sure that your child uses the restroom prior to coming to class. We've found that student who have to use the restroom during class miss out on key curriculum components. If your child has to use the restroom during class, we will first ask the parent or guardian to take them to the restroom. Our hopes are that this will make the process faster so that the student can return to class in a timely manner.
