Karate, and Shito Ryu Karate in particular, is a complete martial arts system from Okinawa and Japan that stresses discipline, strength, and strategic thinking. As a discipline, it helps to develop an individual’s potential to the fullest. It is a marvelous journey of self discovery and expression.
Through the constant polishing of technique you will learn to polish yourcharacter as well. Practice helps to develop a habit of non-judgmental self-examination that helps you improve in every area of life. Through Karate, a student gains self-confidence, pride, patience, and determination. The self-confidence gained can permeate every area of your life, opening up new and more genuine ways of relating to anyone from strangers to bosses to loved ones. Its philosophical and non-violent creed leads to the development of tranquility and inner peace.
Shito Ryu Karate is especially well suited for safely shaping and toning the body, and increasing flexibility. Its movements and forms are suited for any body type. It has a strong balance of strength, beauty, artistry and practicality.
At Pacific Martial Arts, we have successfully developed programs that help our students develop the self-confidence and strength of character which allow them to feel good about themselves. Students find a creative vent for stress, increased energy, and a greater feeling of self-confidence, empowerment, and security.
