Programs & Class Schedule

Contracts are not required for any of our programs, and no experience required to start training. Please check our web site ( for current class schedules and age requirements.

Isshinryu is an Okinawan vertical fist form of Karate that focuses on a set of simple but direct techniques that have been proven effective for self defense in both public and military settings. Classes focus on improving mechanics, accuracy, power, and control while building confidence in each student’s ability to execute the techniques effectively. Intermediate students also train in Okinawan Kobudo (weapons) including Bo, Sai, and Tonfa. Kobudo classes are available to adult Black Belts from other styles who wish to add weapons work to their martial arts training.

Iaido is a traditional Japanese Martial Art for learning Samurai Swordsmanship. Classes focus on the skills, physical conditioning, and mental focus necessary to safely and effectively handle a Katana. Students begin with a Bokuto or wooden sword training the cut movements, self-defense and other drills necessary to become proficient with skills fundamental to this Martial Art. Intermediate students begin training with an Iaito or un-edged metal sword and Shindo Muso Ryu Jodo, a 50” staff art designed for defense against multiple edged weapons.

Adult Self Defense focuses on street application of techniques from Isshinryu, Iaido, and other Martial Arts. Every adult has both the means and right to be able to defend yourself, and these less formal classes help establish a personal toolbox to do so. Classes focus on training a small set of practical techniques along with the confidence, attitude, and awareness necessary to protect yourself and those you love. Special focus seminars are available upon request outside of our normal weekly classes.
