About YUSHINMON KARATE
KARATE was first introduced to OKINAWA from China, where it was developed as an art of self-defense when weapons were prohibited.
We believe that KARATE, as one of the martial arts, offers an opportunity to form healthier individuals, and for one to improve both physically and mentally. We train every part of our bodies to be used as defense weapons.
KARATE is actually a means to protect ourselves. This is why we wear BOGU, protective gear, at training sessions and tournaments. With protective gear, we can enjoy Karate as long as we wish. To be precise, YUSHINMON KARATE is not intended to be a method to defeat others.
