The art of Okinawan Karate has many aspects: technique, forms, fighting, fitness, history and philosophy. At California Martial Arts, we emphasize the art as a whole, creating personal and physical growth in students. We teach both Shorin-ryu and Goju-ryu. We also practice ancient weaponry, and unarmed techniques.
Karate is a great workout, it also builds coordination, discipline, and a strong mind.
