We are Branson Karate and teach the style of Seiyo-No Shorin-Ryu Karate. Shorin Ryu is a traditional style of defensive martial arts. Shorin Ryu focuses on the whole person, mentally, physically, morally and spiritually. Briefly speaking Shorin Ryu Karate uses the “jitsu,” physical techniques derived from the combative arts of the Chinese, Okinawan, Korean and Japanese, to “Maximize students strengths and minimize weaknesses,” through strong powerful and circular techniques, (kicks, strikes, blocks, throws and weapons).
An equal application of hand and foot combinations makes this a true martial art. In Shorin Ryu Karate there is an adherence to tradition. Training Hall Etiquette and philosophical principles underlying karate are taught and encourage application in everyday living by the karate student. Principles such as, Self Discipline, Respect, Humility and Spiritual Strength are taught.
The objective of Shorin Ryu Karate is not to stop at learning superficial movements. It can show the way for us to seek unlimited expansion of the limited mental and physical power, we have placed upon ourselves.
Shorin Ryu Karate is for everyone (age 5 to 75). You may join at anytime, we are open year round. Our practice methods do not condone deformation of any body parts. There are ten degrees below Black Belt and ten degrees of Black Belt. We are a branch school that is Nationally and Internationally affiliated and Certified.
