Chai’s Martial Arts located at 409 Salem Dr. will be closing permanently, according to a letter posted to their Facebook page Wednesday night. Various reasons were cited for closing the karate school, including spending more time with family.
In the letter, Sensei Jenny Coomes said she will do her best to help students reach their next belt or a specific goal if they are close to achieving it.
Private lessons will be continued on a limited basis through Aug. 14, but all regular classes are permanently cancelled according to the letter.
