Whether you are a person seeking a new way to increase your fitness
level, or a skilled athlete looking for a new challenge, men and women
from all backgrounds are invited to accept the rigorous training of
Shorin-Ryu Matsubayashi Karate.
This martial arts style
isn’t for everyone, but if you persevere in this class, you will be
better equipped to handle yourself on the street. We will teach you to
punch, block and kick with focus and power, while you learn to make
correct decisions under duress.
Rank is awarded based on
ability, in the true tradition of the martial arts with only white,
green, brown and blackbelt ranking. There are no multi colored belts
with colored "tips". Rank tests are given quarterly and they are given
free of charge. There are no contracts and no guarantees of rank.
This is a cardiovascular
class, which will provide a challenge as you learn to fight. For
serious students who wish to train year round in a respectful, safe,
yet intense manner.
