Shorin-Ryu Karate for Children

Ueshiro Merritt Island Karate Dojo is conducting traditional Shorin-Ryu Karate classes. These classes are the authentic form, just as it has been practiced and handed down for centuries by the “Bushi” or samurai.

Try Out a Class

The Shorin-Ryu style of karate relies heavily on practice of basic techniques and the performance of katas, ancient pre-arranged exercises where one is either attacking or defending against an imaginary opponent. Performance of katas not only strengthens physical techniques but also enhances the spirit and mind.
