KTKT Muro's Fundraiser

One wave sets thousands in motion.

Our annual fundraiser supports scholarships, our Adapted Seido Karate program, and Violence Prevention outreach in the community.

$3,050 towards $3,000

Family & Friends!

It's time for our annual fundraising challenge on behalf of Thousand Waves! Both Takato & Kumiko continue in their karate journey at Thousand Waves, with Kumiko aiming to promote to 2nd-degree junior black belt next spring and Takato navigating the change from junior black belt to full adult black belt! Likewise, Kenji is back in training (hooray!!) and aiming for a black belt test next spring as well. The kids have grown into leadership roles at the dojo, and continue to both teach and learn within the karate community.

Thousand Waves is a NONPROFIT community organization, and no student is ever turned away due to lack of ability to pay tuition. This fundraiser supports the scholarship fund, so that child & adult students can attend karate classes & camps, and to support self-defense workshops open to the local community.

We appreciate any support you can give!

Thousand Waves is a mission-driven not-for-profit in the city of Chicago that has been active in the community for over 32 years with a mission to foster fitness, healing, empowerment, and peacemaking.

Spirit Challenge Fundraiser supports Thousand Waves' work in three critical areas:

  • Scholarships, which provide funding for children and adults who wouldn't otherwise be able to study karate or self-defense.
  • Adapted Seido Karate (ASK), a partnership with RIC that provides karate for youth with disabilities.
  • Self-Defense/Violence Prevention, which provides Self-defense and Bystander Intervention workshops and courses all over the city.

Thousand Waves' name comes from the Japanese saying, "One wave sets thousands in motion." Just one donation will go a long way to helping me meet my goal for Thousand Waves. Thank you for your support!
