Adult beginners’ men and women are invited to join our lunch-time and evening sessions and discover the fascinating martial art of Goju-Kai Karate-do.
For over 50 years, I’ve been coaching children with character building tools found only in karate. No other sport can match them.
Karate, recently added to the 2020 Olympic program, is more than just a sport. It combines physical, mental and spiritual elements that make it for many a life-long activity.
