In Class...

Every Seichou Karate class begins with a yoga-based full-body warm-up to build strong, flexible muscles. Next, we guide students through repetitive practice of hand strikes, kicks, blocks, stances and movement patterns. Finally, we do paired practice in order for students to actualize the techniques that they have learned earlier in class. The result is that we raise students' heart rate for 45 minutes to an hour, but the intensity ebbs and flows according to the needs of the students in attendance. Also, we make certain students execute these techniques properly in order to avoid repetitive stress injuries because we want our students to enjoy learning practical self-defense safely. If you want to get into great physical condition or learn how to defend yourself, you will love our classes.
