Self-defense - Here
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
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.
