Shorin Ryu karate is an Okinawan system of Martial Arts. It uses kicks, punches, elbows and knee strikes as its primary weapons. It is a variation of Chinese Southern Crane Kung Fu. The beauty of Shorin Ryu is its katas. Katas are pre-arranged movements that are designed to hone its practitioners techniques through repetitive movement until each technique is committed to muscle memory. Every movement of our katas have multiple self defense applications. It covers from simple block-punch techniques, to block-throw, to pressure point strikes, all the way to energy strikes. Karate will help improve physical and mental health, as well as, improve discipline, attention span and focus.
