Okinawa Shorin-ryu Matsumura Seito is a very traditional style of karate and is taught with a “Real World” attitude for today’s world rather then tournament style. No long stances or high kicks! We teach a range of traditional aspects; empty hand karate, kata (forms), tuite (self-defense/joint locks), bag work, one steps, kick drills, change body and kobudo (weapons).
We offer a variety of classes, including separate Adult and for Youth classes we offer beginner, Intermediate, and advanced classes.
