Yoshukai karate is a
Japanese style built on the foundation of the art known as “empty
hand fighting”. The fundamental techniques of punching, striking,
kicking, blocking, sweeps, throws, and take downs are reinforced by
correct physical and physiological training principles. Students
practice kata (forms) and kumite (free sparring) with emphasis on
form, balance, and timing, concentration of power, speed and spirit.
Additional training in oriental weaponry and advanced self-defense
are provided for the advanced students.
