Guardian Dojo – Kyokushin Karate
Kyokushin Karate is a full-contact martial art born out of Japan. Characterized by its integration of traditional martial arts with today’s realistic applications, our programs focus on character development, physical fitness and practical self-defense. Students not only learn to protect themselves through techniques such as kicks, punches and blocks, sparring, and self-defense, but also learn the value of finding non-violent ways to resolve conflict.
Students gain a sense of accomplishment and achievement as they earn increasingly higher levels of Kyokushin belts through quarterly belt testings. Training for these tests and succeeding at challenges will enhance the individual’s ability to concentrate, focus, and to increase the ability to triumph over life’s hurdles. Handbooks containing basic knowledge and skills required for the student’s particular level are available to help them along the way.
Our philosophy is to build a healthy mind, body, and spirit. To promote positive attitudes, courtesy, discipline, and respect through the practice of Kyokushin Karate! Our instructors understand that each individual has learning differences, and therefore classes are tailored to each student’s level of skill, and learning ability – creating a friendly and fun learning environment for all.
