0630091707.jpg IMG_0406.JPG Japanese Karate-Do is a way of life for the modern world...our students practice the ancient movements and methods of self defense . Relying on traditions of etiquette, discipline, we teach the art of the "empty hand way". Class structure and curriculum is : Kihon-basic technique exercise of stance formation and block and strike executions,   focusing on balance and power development. Kata- form practice consisting of memorization of prearranged movements of techniques simulating self defense against multiple attacks, and Kumite-practice of controlled sparring against  opponents, with emphasis on timing, distance and control.
