While our kata are from Japanese karate, we don’t limit ourselves to just one style. We are always evolving, growing, and incorporating new techniques and theory into our curriculum. If it works, we will use it!

Girls love martial arts just as much and get the same fulfillment out of it as boys do. Also, if we’ve learned anything in our years of teaching, it’s that girls are just as tough as boys. Many are even tougher! Young girls in particular can often mature a little faster and be ready to start earlier than boys, although obviously every individual is different.
