We welcome anyone who wants to learn Karate, from beginners to those who simply want to improve and develop their current skills and those who want to expand their skills and techniques to a much higher level.

Using all the muscle groups, karate training develops flexibility, coordination, balance, posture, and muscle tone. It is a great way to improve your health and overall fitness.We practice authentic traditional Japanese Karate as taught by Gichin Funakoshi, the father of modern Karate.
