(Midwest St. Louis County)
Karate is taught as
weaponless self-defense, and emphasized as a martial art rather
than a competitive sport. Achieve
practical expertise, without intimidation or hostility.
Safety is paramount!
Learning from and helping each other, and using skills
effectively and with good judgment is the true art of karate.
