The purpose of karate training is to learn self-defense, self-reliance,
respect (for one's self and others), and character enrichment.
Karate is emphasized as a martial art rather
than a competitive sport. Achieve
practical expertise, without intimidation or hostility.
Safety is paramount!
Learning from and helping each other, and using skills
effectively and with good judgment is the true art of karate.
