Tabular Class Schedule

Please call Sensei Ty Aponte  (951) 204-0341 or (909) 981-6368 to confirm that a class you are interested is ongoing as its time may have changed or it may be just one or two people shy of starting.  

Some classes shown will not start until enough students are interested in participating. Your interest can make a difference! Please CONTACT US to let us know if you would be interested in a class on a day or time not currently listed not available. We will let students know when there is enough interest to allow us to change the class schedule.  We will try to accommodate as many people as possible, but you must let us know what is best for you.

Please try to arrive 10 minutes before the official class starting time.  Some classes may be held upstairs or shared with another class on ground floor. There will generally be separate instructors for each class.
