Program Information:

Seiyo Shorin-Ryu Karate is designed to teach martial artists methods developed by the Okinawan martial artists. Our system focuses on the individual and non-competitive martial arts. We work to keep the individual in balance (In/Yo or Yin/Yang) through martial arts practice, philosophy and meditation. Members train at the Hombu, world-headquarters for Seiyo Shorin-Ryu Karate Kobudo Kai. We offer adult, teen, family and kids classes.

Slogan: The ultimate aim of karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in perfection of its participants.
