- Ryokukai Aikido; this martial art utilizes an opponent's momentum to cause imbalance resulting in the opponent being rendered harmless.
- Iai-jutsu; this art of drawing the Japanese sword, katana, is one of the Japanese koryū martial art disciplines in the education of the classical warrior (bushi)
- Judo and JuJitsu; it involves using holds and leverage to unbalance and control the opponent.
Why should you choose a USA Karate affiliated school over any other?
Karate is now an official Olympic sport, and it will start at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Our school is afiliated to the USA National Karate-do Federation, which is the national governing body of Karate for the United States Olympic Committee and as such is the official Member National Association of the World Karate Federation in the USA. This means not only are the clubs teaching Olympic style Karate-do with coaches educated and background checked for safety by the official governing body, it also means if your child turns out to be good enough it could be the first step towards a medal podium one day!
"We teach martial art techniques, to help our students to improve themselves, develop themselves physically, perfect their personalities,and use these attributes to achieve higher meanings in daily life and to serve society."
