ABOUT OUR KARATE SCHOOL
Integrative Martial Arts is a private training organization teaching Isshin-Ryu (One Heart Way) as our main style. We believe in a hands-on, realistic approach to self-defense that is safe and effective for children and adults. We also put a large emphasis on social and emotional learning and development.
Whether you have taken martial arts before, or this is your first time, our adult classes can be taken by anyone and age. We believe karate is for life and can start at anytime in your life. Join us for a journey into the mind, body and spirit connection and a welcoming community that embraces the path of personal growth.
Adult Classes are now being offered Tuesday's/Thursday's at 6pm in the Palisades. Children and Teens still offered as private lessons. CONTACT US TO JOIN!
I will strive to develop myself in a positive manner and to avoid anything that would reduce my mental growth or my physical health.
I will strive to develop self-discipline, in order to bring out the best in myself and others.
I will strive to use my martial development constructively and defensively, to help myself and others, and never to be abusive or offensive.
