Since 1995



Karate is taught as weaponless self-defense, and emphasized as a martial art rather than a competitive sport.  Achieve confidence and 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.
