Mind - Body - Spirit
What is our philosophy?“It is the responsibility of each generation of karate-ka to make the next generation of students better than the current one” – Mr. Rodney McPherson
What is Karate? "True Karate-do is this: that in daily life, one's mind and body be trained and developed in a spirit of humility; and that in critical times, one be devoted utterly to the cause of justice." - Gichin Funakoshi
We hope to build better citizens through training, dedication, loyalty, and integrity. It is our goal to build self esteem, respect, and confidence in students and further the "matchless American fighting spirit" - Atlee Chittim embodied within our style and system.
We believe that our students will be better suited to cope with life's problems if they develop self esteem and self confidence. Therefore we instill a "can do" attitude in a safe and positive learning environment: "I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me" - Philippians 4:13
Black Belts are ordinary people with extraordinary determination.
Chief Instructor: Rodney McPherson 7th Degree Black Belt Tae Kwon Do, 6th Degree Black Belt Okinawan Kobudo, USKA Hall of Fame Member, Atlee Chittim Role of Honor Member.
