What is Okinawan Karate?

Okinawan karate refers to the martial arts which originated among the indigenous people of Okinawa Island.

Due to its central location, Okinawa was influenced by various cultures including Japan, China, and Southeast Asia, that greatly influenced the development of martial arts on Okinawa.

Okinawan karate includes, but is not limited to, GoJu Ryu, Shorin Ryu, Uechi Ryu and Chito Ryu.

Which class is best for you and your children?

The best method is to contact Shihan Yocham to review the situation. Usually when our youth heads into Jr. High we encourage them to begin attending the adult classes, however we know not everyone at that time fits best there and we have the point of view that everyone is an individual. We would like to place them where they will find the most success.

Call or email today and ask about attending a complimentary class to see what will be the best fit for you and/or your youth.

Email Shihan Yocham or call him at: (512)260-0453.
