What is Enshin Karate?

Enshin Karate is an effective style for everyone.  It's a practical system of empty-handed self defense based on a strategy of circular movement allowing you to use your opponent's power and momentum against them. This strategy, called sabaki, enables you to convert defense into offense.

Enshin Karate stresses the development of flexibility, power, and speed, with emphasis on stretching, conditioning, and technique. Training in Enshin Karate builds spiritual awareness, mental alertness, a sense of confidence, and provides resources for meeting the challenges encountered in life.
