Karate itself is a popular martial art developed in Okinawa, Japan (specifically in the Ryuku Islands south of Japan). It literally means “the way of the empty hand” since no weapons were initially used. Modern karate is largely a striking art, utilizing punches, kicks, strikes involving the knees, elbows, and open hand techniques. In the beginning, karate was a broader fighting style and included techniques that are not as widely taught. Some of these techniques included wrist locks, restraints, and throws.
Senshi ‘warrior’ Ryu ‘school’ or ‘style’ has become a combination of traditional hard and soft styles. Senshi Ryu karate teaches that its students should avoid violence whenever possible. Respect and humility are important concepts taught through Senshi Ryu. At JFA Academy, our focus is on integrity, honor, discipline, and the ability to defend one’s self if it becomes necessary.
Learning Senshi Ryu karate is also a fantastic fitness experience. It also builds focus, self-discipline, confidence, helps in the development of work ethic and builds character to help practitioners keep moving toward their goals. Here at JFA Academy, we believe Senshi Ryu karate is a perfect martial art for children as it helps improve their focus and self-discipline over time. It is also great for families as well as adults looking to learn martial arts.
