Manhattan Beach Karate & Yoga, which takes this title for a fourth consecutive year, offers a variety of camps based on traditional Shotokan Karate, taught by instructors with four decades of experience. Each camp, ranging from beginner to advanced, is custom-tailored to the participants but with an overarching intention of developing a balance of the mental, the physical and the spiritual. Nicolas Salcedo, Manhattan Beach Karate & Yoga’s director, says that with the studio’s close proximity to the ocean, time is divided between the studio and the beach. “Our camps are small and closely supervised,” Salcedo says. “They are fun, educational and great exercise.” Manhattan Beach Karate & Yoga offers early bird specials, group and private sessions, couples shiatsu workshops and karate tournaments. — EK
