ABOUT TRADITIONAL KARATE
The reverence of Traditional Karate lies in our need to express ourselves through physical movement and explore our connection to the physical and spiritual world. Learning to move your body freely through a Traditional Karate experience will not only empower your body, but your overall psyche; giving you a calmer mind, a more peaceful outlook, and improved spatial and personal awareness.
Public perception of martial arts is skewed by the media portrayal of spectacular fighting prowess of a hero single handedly defeating countless “bad guys”. This is far from the truth. In Traditional Karate training, the violent nature of humanity is acknowledged, respected and studied; but never enhanced or glorified. By understanding human aggression, the practitioner is able to avoid danger by precognition, self-confidence and pro-active interjection.
The notion that our body is a holy temple stems from the earliest human experience. Since physical movement is necessary for our survival, the ancients devised ingenious art forms to elevate human consciousness. Thus today, we have Traditional Karate.
Take this unique opportunity to experience this ancient art of self-defense. Satisfy that nagging itch to reclaim your full body movements, sharp and alert mind, and exuberant and positive spirit. The investment of your time will be well rewarded in this short program. You owe it to yourself to act now.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will there be sparring in the beginner’s class?
No, you will not be exposed to any dangerous or unpredictable activities in this course. All the partner-drills will be well paced, controlled and supervised.
Will I fit in even though I am out of shape?
Yes, Traditional Karate exercise is progressive, meaning you learn in step-wise methods that gradually increase in complexity and intensity. You are encouraged to maintain your own, comfortable pace during training. Remember that your classmates will most likely be in a similar condition. The point is to reconnect with your body and mind so you can improve the overall quality of life, by being more mindful of body usage, alert to your surroundings and sensitive to other’s energy field.
I’m already in good shape; will I get a good enough workout at this level?
Yes, but in a different way. Oriental methods of health and wellness, like martial arts, are based on a qualitative and holistic approach to physical discipline. Traditional Karate training will give you much more than calorie burning, target heart rate and physique competition activity. Each class will balance physical, mental and spiritual activities giving you a well-rounded, wholesome workout. The way you view “workout” will evolve to a new level of consciousness.
