We want to hear about your goals and your expectations. Once we understand your needs, we select the classes most suitable to make it happen. We incorporate techniques from several different styles of martial arts studied by Renshi Dennis, Shihan DeeDee, and Shidosha Luis. We use punches, blocks, kicks, elbows, knees, jujitsu-style throws and techniques, and weapons to create a complete self-defense style of martial arts. We teach Ryukyu Kempo, a classical style or "old way" of karate from Okinawa, Japan, and maintain the traditional katas and techniques of Ryukyu Kempo for our kids and adults who come here specifically for self-defense.
Kata: This is the basis for all of our karate training. It is a prearranged set of movements containing various strikes, blocks and grappling techniques designed to build correct muscle memory for self-defense. This way of teaching is becoming extremely hard to find. Most katas and kata training have been altered for the purpose of looking good for competition and has lost their true meaning and value.
Tuite Jitsu: (joint manipulation) Techniques from kata taught by the URKA and Wylie Karate are used to restrain, control or disable an attacker.
Kyusho Jitsu: (vital points) This is the art of advanced striking applications found through kata training used exclusively by the URKA and taught by the instructors at Wylie Karate.
Kobudo : (ancient warrior way) Ancient Okinawan weapons training, meant to augment the open-hand self-defense education. The method used by the URKA and Wylie Karate is designed to enhance all your self-defense skills.
In the beginning we will discuss the process, so there is no doubt about where it’s all going to lead.
