What We Teach

We teach a traditional style of karate adapted to today’s lifAdult woman doing karateestyles. Our training incorporates physical fitness, basics, kata (traditional set patterns of movements), sparring, and self-defense.

The core of what we teach is the art of Okinawa Kenpo Karate Kobudo (Okinawa Kenpo for short). Okinawa Kenpo includes both empty hand techniques (karate) and the use of traditional weapons (kobudo). We seek to faithfully teach the traditional techniques and forms along with their application.

Alongside this backbone, we incorporate techniques and skills from a great number of other styles and arts: from boxing to kickboxing, from Krav Maga to the Tony Blauer Tactical System.


We believe that karate is as much about building the character of the practitioner as it is the body. This belief is embodied in our Dojo precepts, six character traits that we actively pursue together through our study of karate.

  1. Humility
  2. Self-control
  3. Integrity
  4. Courtesy
  5. Discipline
  6. Perseverance



We are certified by the Okinawa Kenpo Karate Kobudo Devalentino Shudokan Schools International.
