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 realistic applications, our program focuses on character development, discipline, physical fitness, and practical self-defense. Students not only learn to protect themselves through striking/blocking techniques, sparring, and self-defense, but also learn the value of non-violent conflict resolution.
Students gain a sense of accomplishment and achievement as they train and progress through Kyokushin belt testings. Training to overcome challenges will build Kyokushin spirit, concentration, and focus. Handouts containing basic knowledge and a list of skills required for the student’s progression 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 every individual has learning differences and different physical abilities; classes are tailored to each student’s level of skill and learning ability – creating a family-friendly and fun learning environment for all.
