Learning self defense or martial arts such as Karate, Kobudo, or Aikido is really a journey of self discovery, of which character development plays a key role. For our traditional martial arts lessons, we follow the universal standard (SKIF) Shotokan Karate and Okinawan Kobudo curriculum which has a specific skill set for each of the 10 levels to black belt. These include blocks, strikes, punches, kicks, forms and sparring.
For Competitive Sport Karate the training program includes development of explosive movement, strength, and strategy in addition to savvy sparring (kumite) skills and meticulous forms (Kata).
Self Defense lessons are taught with regard to realistic application. It is our philosophy to build upon the nature assets of the individual student and help them to master basic and effective self defense techniques, escapes.
I am a licensed and certified Karate Instructor with over 35 years experience in Shotokan Karate, teaching since 1988. I have a degree in Applied Science and certified in health & wellness and licensed RN. All of our instructors have a least a decade of experience in their martial art specialty, with multiple certifications. We have taught hundreds of students over the years.
All of them developed self confidence & self respect, strength in mind and physical skill. Many have used their skills to stand up to bullies or to be confident to "do the right thing" under pressure. Some have needed to use their skills in a serious self defense situation. Over a dozen of our "Competition Team" members have become National Karate and Kobudo Champions.
