Classes Offered

Morning Class | Senior Class | 3 to 5 year olds/parents | 4 to 8 year olds/parents | All Ages | Teen/Adult | Private

All classes are based on traditional Okinawan Shorin-Ryu Karate, Jujutsu (what people commonly refer to as self defense) and Kobudo (weaponry including sai, bo, kama, tonfa and nunchaku). Classes consist of warm up exercises, learning techniques and appling techniques. Techniques are applied in a varity of safe ways which inculde, kumite (prearranged practice), bunkai (application from kata), oyo (a students own natural reaction) and exchange preactice (students practice defending themselves agaisnt a random attack). We do not participate in free sparing.

Students will learn more than just how to defend themselves. They learn self control, to work hard, to work with others, how to avoid a confrontation, how to reduce the chances of being attacked and how to maximize their own strengths. They also learn how to make friends and handle bullies, teasers and other mean people. Students will build a more positive attitude, self esteem and respect for themselves and others.
