Banzai Treats (Any excuse to eat!)

Our Karate Club, Colahan Martial Arts, can find all kinds of reasons to eat. And if we don’t have a reason, we’ll make one up! Any excuse to eat is a good one, right? With workouts that burn 600-1000 calories, we don’t concern ourselves with the occasional plate of sugar. We meet for monthly lunches, a summer Kara-Te-Que, and a Christmas Dinner.

Just part of the choir singing to the birthday karateka.

Banzai Birthdays are celebrated with treats and some really horrible singing after class!

Treats are chosen by the karateka celebrating their birthday. We have a pretty good assortment of desserts, but we have a definite leaning towards chocolate things!

Check out the sugary treats below. If you’re looking for a good treat that travels well, any of these should work. Click the name of the treat to get the recipes from my food blog, Munchies Mind. Enjoy!
