Open Hand, a Community Martial Arts Nonprofit
Our goal is to bring the benefits of martial arts to anyone who wants them. We believe it’s not just the practice of karate that helps people be their best selves. It’s also the principles, which help us navigate a rough world and make it better for ourselves and those around us. We believe everyone can benefit from a welcoming place to work hard, strive, and be accepted no matter where you start. We’re more than punching and kicking, but if that’s your thing we’ve got you covered.
After School Program
Starting Sept. 1, our after school program at the CR NW Rec Center teaches karate and other activities, along with other core values (and snacks!), after school.

Donate to Open Hand
Open Hand funding comes from our programs and people like you. We need your help to keep our programming affordable, provide scholarships to those who need it, and reach underserved populations. We want to grow to provide martial arts classes and seminars in movement, conflict avoidance and resolution, and life protection to low income kids, veterans, folks who are neuro-atypical, abuse survivors, returning from incarceration, disabled, and more.
Your generosity and support makes this happen. Every dollar you give helps us reach more people and create a more empowered, connected community.
