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.
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!
