Our objective is to develop a strong technical foundation in a safe learning environment. Students who embrace our culture of respect, intensity and focus thrive in our formal but collegial environment. We believe that thinking critically is important in understanding and encourage questions during discussion periods.The duration of a class is approximately one and a half hours. While you should wear comfortable clothing for your first few classes, a clean uniform in good condition is required for all students holding grades. Class sizes typically range from 10-20 students. For the student interested in the art of karate, the techniques taught give a solid foundation for advanced study and practical self-defense. We encourage you to try a free class to assess your suitability. We measure success relative to both technical proficiency and personal growth and development.Together we help one another to achieve goals, overcome challenges, and learn from our collective experience.
