Comprehensive Self Defense and Fitness

Our teen and adult programs offer a unique, comprehensive curriculum that blends traditional martial arts and self-defense with a strong focus on personal fitness and physical empowerment.

Uechi-Ryu karate consists of three related areas of training:

  • Training of the body: Training that includes flexibility, coordination, balance, strength, speed, and stamina.

  • Training of the mind: Training to improve concentration, awareness, emotional discipline, confidence and serenity.

  • Training in self-defense: Protect yourself by learning timing, distancing, accuracy, techniques of blocking and counterattacking, and psychological principles of fighting.

As in our junior program, we at Alan Kessler's Karate Center strongly believe that karate is not just a physical discipline but a way of life. We provide a strong, vibrant community of martial artists that welcomes everybody who comes through our door.
