Since 1996 we have been training our students in the style of Goju Ryu Karate; "The Original Mixed Martial Arts". Our students learn the five basic fundamentals of Martial arts, sticking, throwing, grappling and weapons. All of our students will develop self confedence, become physically fit and above all be able to Defend themselves.

Parents are welcome to watch, and sometimes participate. Karate has proliferated over countless centuries, over different languages, and ethnicities. It has transcended over generations; in addition to crossing continents and oceans. We are extremely proud to have Karate as one of our core disciplines. Karate is a passive form of self-defense, requiring a highly ethical philosophy. Words like honor, discipline, respect, are the back bone of the character we help build. These lessons are deeply rooted in centuries of tradition.
