Goju is one of the traditional Japanese styles of karate, featuring a combination of hard and soft techniques. Goju means soft blocks and hard counters. While studying Goju, a major emphasis is given to breathing correctly. Goju has a kata or form focused on breathing correctly. Goju combines hard striking attacks such as kicks and closed hand punches with softer open hand techniques for blocking and controlling the opponent. Goju is highly dynamic and makes a balanced use of a large number of body muscles. It provides excellent all-around exercise and develops coordination and agility. Many people across the world have trained in Goju because of its usefulness as self-defense. This style is widely practiced by both children and adults as a means of keeping in top physical condition. As a sport, Goju has a relatively short history. Contest rules have been developed, and it is now possible to hold actual matches as in other competitive sports. Due to the speed, the variety of techniques and the split-second timing it calls for many athletic-minded people have come to show an interest in competitive karate. With the increase in interest, it seems that karate will continue to grow in popularity. Our instructors provide these classes for a monthly fee of $40.00 per student. We are able to extend this great savings to you due to the instructors donating their time to the student. This monthly fee helps maintain the equipment used during class sessions and to provide a safe location for our classes. There are no contracts with our students and the first lesson is FREE! We are currently accepting students who are at least 6 years old. Once a student has achieved all knowledge needed to receive a new rank, an instructor will approach the parent (if student is under 18) or student and inform them that they are ready to test. This insures that the $25.00 testing fee is collected only when a student is actually ready to test. Our instructors goals are to provide each student with the knowledge of Goju Martial Arts that can be passed on from generation to generation at a very affordable rate.
