Learning Karate is like learning how to live. It teaches you patience, and how to compete with yourself. It teaches you how to win a conflict without fighting. This is known as the "Wiseman's Art". You learn how to defend yourself when you have no choice. With the unpredictability of the community and the new stresses of peer pressure on your young children, Karate gives them the tools to handle situations and maintain their own place with the confident mind developed in Goju Ryu Uchiage Kai Karate.
Karate develops both sides of the body equally through our forms called "Kata"; the time capsule of self-defense techniques with over 2000 years of history. Karate also develops balance in mind and body working with others and developing the physical ability to set your proper foundation to deliver the power of Karate at an instant.
