New HomeWhat is Tenkara??

Tenkara is a Japanese word which can be translated as “The Point of Origin” or “The Beginning. Tenkara Karate is a Japanese style of karate with its roots based firmly in tradition – originating from Seido and Kokorokan. Tenkara’s training is comprehensive with special emphasis placed on love, respect, and discipline. Classes are taught in Japanese, and all new students are given a series of lessons before attending regular classes.

Tenkara classes consist of Traditional Japanese forms, self-defense, sparring, endurance and strength conditioning. Weapons are also taught starting at the rank of Black Belt. Tenkara endeavors to develop Karateka of strong moral character as well as reinforce positive values which will transcend the dojo walls into everyday life.
