Karate STL

Saint Louis, 
Missouri USA
 (Midwest
Saint Louis County)

Since 1995



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 confidence and 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.
