Classes

Since the birth of the second man, individuals throughout history have found themselves facing an agressor in barehanded combat. The Karate instructors in the International Karate Federation are dedicated to the teaching of Karate as a method of self-defense, as well as, a method to cultivate the mind and the spirit.

At the IKF Yoshukai Karate Dojo (training hall), students will be confronted by a discipline which will tax their patience and endurance to the limit; a code which will demand self-control and courtesy; and an instructor who will accept nothing less than perfection. The student will become a person of character; a person who bears respect for their peers and higher ranks; a person who exists in harmony with their surroundings; a person who is both gentle and firm; a person who faces danger with calmness; and above all, a person who uses Karate for just and righteous principles.
