Choosing a Martial Arts School?
January 2, 2018 - If you are looking into a Martial Art for your self or your child, the Northern
Virginia area is fortunate to have many quality Martial Arts schools from which to choose. However, often it can be confusing
when picking a school, we recommend you read "Why Karate?" for some helpful hints.
We teach a branch
of Shito-Ryu, one of the recognized Japanese styles of Karate-Do. Karate-Do (Empty Hand Way) is the study of not only
the techniques of this particular Martial Art: blocks, punches, kicks, breaking and releases, but also the character building,
or “Do”, features of Martial Arts: self-confidence, empathy, commitment and humility. We believe karate-do
is not only a means of self-defense and exercise, but also a healthy way of life. Karate-do fosters growth of mind,
body and spirit in each individual.
We strive to keep our class sizes small
so each student may get the maximum benefit for individualize instruction. To find out more information about us and how your
child may benefit from karate-do lessons click here.
