Karate STL

St Louis, 
Missouri 63043 USA
(Midwest St Louis County)

Since 1995

The purpose of karate training is to learn self-defense, self-reliance, respect (for oneself 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, as well as using skills effectively and with good judgment, is the true art of karate.
