Welcome to Yama Shi Karate
Yama Shi Karate focuses on the improvement of one's self.
Yama Shi Karate focuses on both aspects of mental and physical developments. Our system is forged from the blending of different Traditional Karate styles that come from Okinawa. Our foundation is engrained in the katas from Shorin-Ryu, Goju-Ryu, Shito-Ryu, and Tomari-te. Yama Shi Karate karate-ka (karate practitioners) study blocks, punches and kicking (as found in various styles of Karate), evasive movements and grappling (similar to Aikido), and traditional weaponry.
We train in the classical katas and weaponry while instilling the development of a non-aggressive mindset in our karate-ka. Perfecting physical movements and patterns is only one aspect of training. The other is the focus of understanding the importance of the "Way."
