Benefits of Karate
Unlike self-defence courses that show a person a set of logical defences against a potential attacker, karate sets out to develop appropriate instinctive habits in its students.
FITNESS & VITALITY
The techniques practiced involve the use of every muscle in the body, making it an excellent all-over body workout. Karate also serves to develop balance, agility, coordination and flexibility. Many students who have never been good at sports, often become highly competent after practicing karate.
Karate promotes respect and courtesy. It teaches a student to become more disciplined, more patient and encourages humility above ego. The Dojo environment does not tolerate foul language or negative behaviour. It is a place where each student can be the very best version of themselves.
In most sports, you win or you lose. As karate is an individual activity there is no losing, nor is there any pressure of ‘letting the team down’. As such, the student may focus on developing at their own pace. Seeing their progression, improving their skills, becoming stronger and more coordinated, their self-confidence also grows.
What is Goju Ryu?
Goju Ryu 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 used by Okinawan masters during the 19th and 20th centuries. The Bubishi "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. Goju-Ryu 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.
