Our only goal is to teach Karate in the manner it was intended, for the purpose it was intended for. This focus allows us to develop students to be strong-minded self-confident individuals who can defend themselves.

We have been teaching only Okinawan shorin-ryu karate, this is not a hybrid or made up system is roots go back as far as 350+ years and what we teach was developed in battle for the Bodyguards of the Old Kingdom in Okinawa.

Shorin-ryu utilizes the hands, feet, elbows, and knees for strikes, it also has throws and pressure point strikes.",
