Description

Isshinryu Karate is an Okinawan martial art that cultivates the development of body, mind, and spirit. This way of self defesne translates into English as the "whole heart method." Founded by Tatsuo Shimabuku, Isshinryu teaches its practitioners to clear the mind of useless or negative thoughts, allowing a student to concentrate on a specific goal. Lessons are done in a traditional format beginning with flexibility and stretching exercises, then the practicing of Kata with advanced defensive movements. Regular practice of Isshinryu will develop timing, reflexes, conditioning, confidence and most importantly a positive attitude. If you are interested in a fun, motivational, and rewarding program, please contact our officers at karate-off@union.rpi.edu
