Traditional Karate At Its Best!

Okinawa Goju-Ryu Karate

Goju-ryu is one of the most popular styles of karate with a rich history and tradition. It is characterized by round movements, highly developed breathing methods and stresses a harmonious blend of power and evasion: hence the name Goju, which means hard and soft. 

The training is traditional and very comprehensive. There are 5 main areas of development that will be covered in your training:

  1. Preparatory Exercises.These exercises will enhance your flexibility, strength and endurance while introducing you to the movements and techniques of Goju-Ryu Karate.
  2. Kihon (basics)Here you will learn the fundamental techniques which include stances, punching, blocking, kicking and proper breathing.
  3. Kata.Kata are prearranged sets of movements which contain practical blocking and attacking techniques that students practice alone. There are 12 kata in Goju-Ryu and once grasped they provide many benefits, such as quicker reflexes, increased stamina, coordination and self-defense for all situations.
  4. Kumite (sparring)- Kumite allows for the practice of defensive and offensive techniques with a partner. This will teach you how the techniques actually work and helps to develop an appreciation for proper distance, timing and fighting spirit.

5. Hojo Undo (supplementary exercises) - These exercises involve the use of various training devices to enhance our strength and technique.
