Karate Origins

Karate is a martial art developed in the Ryukyu Islands in what is now Okinawa, Japan. It was developed from indigenous fighting methods called 'te' (literal meaning is "hand"; Tii in Okinawan) and Chinese kenpo. Karate is a striking art using punching, kicking, knee and elbow strikes, and open-handed techniques such as knife-hands. Grappling, locks, restraints, throws, and vital point strikes are taught in some styles. A karate practitioner is called a karateka.

Our son Ryan has been a student at Cape Coral Isshinryu Karate for eight years. Karate has been a big part of Ryan’s life. He has learned so much from karate including self-defense, self-discipline and most importantly that hard work makes you confident and strong. Sensei Kelly has a great teaching ability and knows how to teach each student age and rank appropriately and takes pride in his student’s achievements. We have enjoyed being part of the dojo family over the years and have made many good friends. It has not only been a great experience for our son but for the entire family.
