FAQ About Karate

Why study Karate? For centuries, millions of people have benefited from the teachings of karate, a system of self-defense created in the Orient that does not depend on the use of weapons. Instead, karate promotes a philosophy of strengthening the mind and body through self-discipline, fitness and awareness. At the Okinawan Karate Academy, we combine the time-tested Eastern philosophy of karate with the modern approach of Western teaching methods. We offer a well-balanced program for adults and children that emphasizes pride, self-esteem, fitness and integrity. Can kids study Karate? Karate is great for kids! Karate is good, clean fun... and a great way to give kids a head start on life. At the Okinawan Karate Academy, kids learn the positive benefits of self-discipline, confidence, develop coordination, and increase strength and flexibility. And because a structure of respect is built into karate, children develop the ability to listen, learn and achieve within a highly regulated environment. This proves to be an excellent reinforcement of study techniques for school. Why should I study at the Okinawan Karate Academy? The Okinawan Karate Academy offers a unique blend of traditional karate training coupled with proven physical and learning development techniques. We believe that while instructors must be martial arts experts, they should also have spent years acquiring the knowledge and experience needed to teach and motivate students to be their best. Unlike other schools, the Okinawan Karate Academy has mature instructors who understand the philosophy of teaching as well as the art of self-defense. Do you have special programs for women? Yes, the Okinawan Karate Academy offers programs for women that include training in karate, as well as psychological support for those who want to learn to defend themselves. The programs are taught by both female and male instructors. Women not only gain physical conditioning, but also study the mental and physical aspects of defensive situations. Both beginning and advanced self-defense programs are offered in addition to the traditional martial arts classes. When could I start? Now's the time.
