Classes are taught in Bremerton Washington by Shihan Chieko Huse, a 5th Dan Black Belt and in Fairfield California by Shihan Brian Douglas, both with over 30 years experience in teaching, training and competing. The style of Karate is Goju Ryu. Students will learn a variety of techniques including punching, kicking, blocking, Kata (form), sparring both pre-arranged and free style as well as self defense techniques.
Classes start with a traditional ceremony followed by stretching, cardio and strength training. After warm-up exercises, students work on different aspects of the Goju Ryu style of karate including Kihon Ido (basic movements), Kata (form training), and Kumite (sparring exercises). The class then closes with a traditional Ceremony.
