Karate is not merely a sport its a martial art whose aim is harmonizing mind and body for balance, strength, perseverance for total confidence and self mastery .

1400 years ago a monk named Daruma came to China from India and taught Buddhism. The Chinese also utilized and adapted these arts for physical fitness. And somewhere near the same time frame in japan King Shohashi united Okinawa and banned weapons Hence to protect themselves from bandits they had to learn some sort physical protection which kind of lead to the origin of Japanese style of karate

Funakoshi transformed Kara-te from a mere fighting technique of Okinawa to a full-fledged martial art with a spiritual background. He not only ttaught the physical aspects of Karate, but also instructed his students in teh new phiolosophy of this martial art. Some of his percepts were: "Karate is not for winning but to build character;" "Karate is a martial art of a respected person;" "All Kata of Karate start from a blocking technique because Karate is for defense and not for aggression;" "To win one hundred victories in one hundred battles does not prove superior skill; rather, to defeat the enemy without fighting indicates superior skill."

As Naha-Te had no formal name he came up with hybrid nature of Wado. Wad -ry 's founder Hironori Ohtsuka was a licensed the impromptu name Hanko Ry (Half-Hard Style).

 Our Dojo is dedicated to imparting instruction in the Shotokan Karate of JKA Japan Karate Association. The JKA was formed by Master Gichin Funakoshi, (pen-named, Shoto), who brought Karate to the mainland Japan from Okinawa. The JKA is the oldest and largest single style Karate organization, with its corporate headquarters in Japan, and branches in over 126 countries world-wide.

 The JKA emphasizes on practical and scientifically proven training methods, in line with safety and correct body-mechanics.  Also, JKA Karate is the only style or school of Martial Arts that emphasizes on training and developing a one strike, one kill approach. Even in our tournaments, one wins through one deadly shot/technique, instead of accumulating points and playing tag. This keeps training very real, and obviously, very practical for combat and self-defense.
