Karate for Adults
Karate was developed over hundreds of years on the small island
of Okinawa as a means of weaponless self-defense. While karate is
still practiced as self-defense, it is also practiced as a means
of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and moral development.
Students polish their hearts and minds as they polish their self-defense
skills. Because karate is more than self defense, it is often called
karate-do, meaning "the way of karate".
Karate is a balanced exercise, involving both mind and body, challenging
to learn and physically demanding. Don't let that scare you. It's
also lots of fun! You will make new friends, work together in peace
and cooperation, relieve stress, improve fitness, sharpen your mind
and develop self-confidence.
great about yourself! Experience the terrific feeling that comes
from a strong body, a strong mind and a strong spirit!
