Goju-Ryu Karate - Self Defense - Kobudo (Weapons)
Gōjū-ryū (剛柔流?), (Japanese for "hard-soft style") is one of the main traditional Okinawan styles of karate, featuring a combination of hard and soft techniques. Both principles, hard and soft, come from the famous martial arts book Bubishi (Chinese: wu bei ji), used by Okinawan masters during the 19th and 20th centuries. Go, which means hard, refers to closed hand techniques or straight linear attacks; Ju, which means soft, refers to open hand techniques and circular movements. Gōjū-ryū incorporates both circular and linear movements into its curriculum, combining hard striking attacks such as kicks and close hand punches with softer open hand circular techniques for attacking, blocking, and controlling the opponent, including locks, grappling, takedowns and throws.

What do I need for my (or my child's) first class?
Wear comfy clothes to your first class, and come about ten minutes early so we can fit you for a gi (uniform) and get you (your child) aquainted and comfortable. If we don't have your size in stock we will do our best to get it in within a week, two at most.
What style of karate does Triple Arts teach?
Our style of karate is Goju-Ryu, and we are members of the IOGKF (International Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate Federation). We are very proud to train under Sensei Colin Arnold and Miss Madelaine Massey, and under their Sensei, Tetsuji Nakamura. Traditional Okinawan karate teaches us to value some very old traditions.
