Why Karate
1. Self-confidence/Motivation
Participating in martial arts gives you self-confidence; it gives you a good understanding of yourself and helps you understand what it takes to achieve a goal, we all are travelling down a similar path.  The feeling of remembering a kata, passing a grade, winning a medal, these are feelings that you will never forget and will help you in other aspects of life. Karate teaches you how to handle pressure by applying a little bit at a time.
2. Respect
With all ages and grades working alongside each other, helping each other helps build community spirit and mutual respect.  Students respect the achievements of their Sensei and piers and are inspired.
3. Discipline
A person who enters a karate class will see that people will bow to each other, call the instructor Sensei (teacher) and conform to the rules and guidelines set forth by the club. This makes a person feel rather awkward themselves if they don't conform to their surroundings. People can be taught humility simply by being in an environment where it is prominent.
4. Fitness and coordination
Our sessions vary and consist of a good mixture of cardiovascular endurance, strength training and flexibility exercises that are designed to benefit the whole body. We continue to research the best training methods known to the fitness and karate world, and we're serious about it.
5. Fun/Release
Karate is an endless learning experience that provides constant challenge keeping you alert and let your confidence grow. Not only do you benefit from learning the techniques and routines that karate provides, you do it with other people that share a common interest. Any extra curricular activity you involve yourself in should be a release from the stress or anxiety that builds up in our daily routines.
