Karate-Do is "The Way of the Empty Hand." With a wide variety of techniques like blocks, kicks, strikes, punches and takedowns, Shito-Ryu is considered the most comprehensive style among the four major Karate-Do systems.
The ancient art of the sword lies at the heart of Japanese martial arts. Iai-do is the practice of drawing the sword - requiring focus, intensity and hard work. Our style carries an unbroken history of over 450 years.
Battoh-do is the practical application of the sword - cutting. Practice and technique emulate the harsh reality of fighting as a samurai. Every move means the difference between life and death.
Our "no-holds barred" adult self-defense class is absoultely like no other. Students cover a core of practical techniques in real-life situations. Not for the faint of heart, this class is physical and intense.
