Our mission is to provide students ages 8 and up with a sustainable method to health, fitness & safety.
Our program is based on karate and kickboxing basics and freestyle chanbara.
Before karate was popularized it was different in certain ways:
*predominantly individualized training/small groups
*cross training/more than one teacher/style
*emphasis on physical conditioning
*emphasis on usefulness
*weapons training always included
*no rank system
We are moving in this direction.
A typical class includes a warm up, oonditioning, basic skills, and interactive exercises. Awareness and avoidance of danger, respect for self and others, and kindness and consideration is woven into the program.
Class is free, you will need to purchase your own gear:
1) clean indoor only gym shoes
2) black work out pants and black t shirt
3) boxing/mma gloves
4) chanbara sword & helmet
