Our Commitment 

At Shinpu-Ren Family Karate, we are dedicated to developing proficient, well rounded martial artists. We believe hard work yields excellent results. Karate is a fighting art and sport. It requires discipline, consistent attendance and effort to excel. Each session builds on the previous, creating a well rounded student. To achieve success, students need to be committed to their practice not only in the Dojo, but also at home and in daily life. Parents enrolling their children help create this dynamic with consistent encouragement and motivation for their student to achieve their next goal in the Dojo. Karate is a very personal journey for every student. As instructors, we strive to empower our students to become the highest quality martial arts student that they can become. 

Although we encourage tournament competition it is not the main focus of training. It is used as a means of comparison for students to measure their skill level with other systems and to teach sportsmanship, dedication, fun and camaraderie in competition. 

We are a Family Karate school and welcome all ages to train with us
