How we study karate...
of Mahwah teaches self-defense through the practice of:
individually performed sequences that combine a
variety of kicking, punching and blocking techniques
two-person exercises for practicing basic
punching, kicking and blocking movement techniques as well as
prearranged, controlled sparring drills that include a variety of throwing
applications of the kata forms practiced in a group of
four to five people
Progressively more complex kata, kumite and bunkai are
taught as the student advances through the belt levels.
Each training session includes warm-ups, stretching and conditioning.
