Why become a student of Kyo-Sho Ryu Karate Jitsu
Kyo-Sho Ryu Karate Jitsu can offer you a sharper, more focused mind - a stronger sense of self confidence - more self discipline - the ability to physically defend yourself.
People often think that martial arts are about fighting but that's not what we emphasize at the Kyo Sho Ryu Karate Jitsu. We focus on the personal development aspects of martial arts because that's why most people participate.
According to statistics almost half of the 7 million participants in martial arts are children ages 5-17. And it's not unusual for the whole family to get involved; one-third of the students are women, many of them moms.
No matter what discipline of martial arts you choose, whether it is karate, kung fu, taekwondo, jujitsu, judo, aikido, or another one of the many forms of martial arts, the styles may differ but the benefits remain the same.
Martial arts are a great workout! It is a total body workout - your stamina, muscle tone, flexibility, balance and strength will all show signs of improvement.
Increase self esteem and social skills:
By learning these skills and improving your physical condition, you become more comfortable in all situations, whether you're in danger or simply doing a task that takes you beyond your comfort zone. Kids have a new sense of self-confidence. Martial arts strongly emphasize self discipline and self control as a core component of its teachings. Self leadership and the ability to deal with others in a mature way is the result
Increased focus and concentration:
Learning the forms and movements reinforces working memory. From the very first day of class, students are challenged to think as much as they act. That's why some mayor Clinic specifically counts the martial arts of karate as been very effective therapies for ADD and ADHD.
Kicking, punching and screaming are a great release for stress, no matter what your age.
Respect for values:
Honesty, courtesy, integrity, perseverance and excellence are some areas of focus. These qualities help both children and adults to become great leaders.
Our mission at Kyo-Sho Ryu Karate Jitsu is building strong minds and bodies.
