Japanese Okinawan Karate dates back to the 1800’s. It focuses on self-defense by defeating an attacker in one or two moves while maintaining the Code of Conduct to never use technique aggressively, only in defense. This art is ideal for any age and a black belt can typically be earned within five years. Our kids’ Karate program focuses on self-defense and self-discipline while maintaining the Code of Conduct to never use martial arts skills aggressively, only in self-defense. Kids’ Karate is for youth ages 5-10 years. Adults 11+ years.
