Adult Shito-Ryu

Shito-Ryu is both a hard and soft style and gets its arts of self-defense from Aiki-Jujitsu. The style was created as a traditional, non-competitive style, meaning that the training is primarily directed towards the practice of self-defense, as opposed to other styles that were created as a sport with its training primarily directed towards competition. Shito-Ryu practitioners strive to always better themselves both outside (physically) and inside (spiritually).

Classes are Monday through Thursday: 6:00-7:30 pm



White Crane Tai Chi

A low-intensity exercise, Tai Chi enhances balance and body awareness through slow, rhythmic body movements. It teaches proper posture and breathing techniques beneficial to your health. It does not matter your age, sex, size or limitations because anyone can participate. The class is designed to provide a comfortable, relaxing, stress-free environment to aid in a person’s growth physically, mentally and spiritually.

Classes are held Tuesday & Thursday from 11:30am-12:30pm



Little Ninjas and Kids with Kick Children's Classes

Little Ninjas (ages 3 to 5) and Kids with Kick (ages 6 to 12)
programs teach two different styles, Kong Soo Do and Hapkido. Both styles are traditional, non-competitive arts with a focus on self-defense. The self-defense is designed with the children in mind. We also teach the students about proper behavior and morals, both inside and outside of the class. The classes are designed to be fun and upbeat yet they are well structured and organized and the students are taught to be disciplined. This will be reflected in the students behavior both at home and school.

Little Ninja Classes are held: Monday & Thursday: 4:00 pm – 4:30 pm  

Kids with Kick classes are held Monday thru Thursday: 5:00 pm – 5:45pm
