"Preserving The Old Ways"


Goju-Ryu for Children


Set your mind at ease, knowing that your children are not only getting the health benefit of martial arts training, but also are being armed with many mental, ethical, and physical skills that help them in school and life. Being a child today can be scary, with abductions, drugs, gangs, bullies and a multitude of other social problems.

Although no one can guarantee success, we can help bring out qualities already present in your child like self-respect and self-discipline from which strength and responsibility come. Understanding when and how to avoid conflict is one thing. However, when confronted without a means of escape, it becomes increasingly important that your child has the ability to protect themselves.  Our classes offer your child with not only the physical abilities to defend themselves but the added confidence to conquer the fears and weaknesses inside themselves. When done right, we never lose in Karate or in life.

Goju-Ryu for Adults

If you are considering taking a martial arts class, that is excellent news. Our martial arts training is a fantastic way to get fit, beat out stress, and meet interesting people with similar interests and goals. No matter your age, ability, or current fitness level, you will quickly begin to realize the true benefits of martial arts training.  Like all our students, our adult students come from diverse backgrounds and include fire fighters, medical professionals, musicians, attorneys, students, IT professionals, business owners, the service industry and ranging in age from 14 to early 60's.  And with limited class size we are able to provide more one-on-one attention than large commercial schools.

Complete Life Benefits

Unlike most physical activities or sports, your training will transfer into your everyday routine. When you leave the dojo floor you leave with more than just sweaty clothes. Since much of the training is physical development and no special equipment is required, there are no restrictions on where or when you can practice. Even missing a class or two will not deter from your progress as we will teach you how to teach yourself. 

Success in Karate requires much more than just physical adeptness. Some of the benefits developed through Karate training are:

Improved Understanding That Possible Failure Is a Natural Part of Success

Increased Motivation & Discipline to Finish Tasks

It is very important that we stress that we will spend no time on the sport side of the Martial Arts.  Class duration: An hour and a half.
