Karate is a self-defence system that has evolved from the study of fighting techniques for centuries. Skills that were developed included blocking, striking, and evading attacks. Goju Ryu Karate has been passed down from teacher to student for generations. Certain aspects have been preserved in their original form while others have been enhanced through studies in anatomy, kinesiology, and physics. In the traditional Karate Dojo (training place), emphasis is placed on the rigorous training of the body, the development of the mind and the enlightenment of the spirit through classical training. You can expect to lose weight, gain greater energy, and develop a strong, toned and healthier body. Improving in the art and achieving higher grades, gives one a sense of accomplishment and greater confidence in oneself. Modern life deprives us of the exercise necessary for physical and mental health. Karate is a fun and challenging way of gradually honing you into the best shape of your life. Not only do you develop top-notch self-defence abilities with karate training, you fight premature aging, and enjoy a longer, healthier and more exciting life! Adult students of karate training develop a wide range of mental and spiritual characteristics. Self-confidence, control and discipline are all qualities formed through karate training. Training in Karate allows one to be apart of a social group of like minded individuals. Training will get you off the couch and get you active and healthy!! Come out and try a class!!
