Learning Goju Ryu Uchiage Kai Karate is like learning how to live. It teaches you patience, and how to compete with yourself. It teaches how to manage conflict without fighting. This is known as the "Wiseman's Art". A person can learn how to defend oneself. With the unpredictability and stresses of peer pressure on young children, Karate gives them the tools to handle situations and maintain their own place with a confident mind developed.
Karate develops both sides of the body equally through forms called "Kata"; the time capsule of self-defense techniques with over 2000 years of history.
Life skills attained in Karate include role modeling, confidence, respect, discipline, positive attitude, sharing, patience, rational thinking, and more. Fitness rewards are strength, flexibility, stamina, alertness, focus, energy, and coordination.
