WHY STUDY KARATE?

"There is no first attack in Karate."
This phrase embodies the essential spirit of Okinawan karate. Although karate is a martial art, it must be a defensive art from beginning to end. The focus of our program is not kicking and punching, as much as it is the development of a student's character.
