THE LIFE-CHANGING BENEFITS OF
It's called ISSHINRYU KARATE.
Let me explain:....Isshinryu karate places an emphasis on challenging the human spirit to achieve new levels of personal accomplishment by being physical, practicing meditation, connecting with the world we live in, and the people that live in it. Pretty cool right? HEYYY!!!!!.....REALITY CHECK! REALLY!? YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME, RIGHT?
YOU WANT ME TO WHAT???? Change my busy schedule? WHAT!? CHANGE!? WHO LIKES CHANGE!?? I know...I felt that way too, so nothing personal.
I love the videos of athletes forging ahead against the odds, relenting, overcoming CHALLENGES, BUT THAT WAS TV! NOT REAL LIFE. Not for me at least.
The truth is...I was very lazy and admittedly very proud of it! Who likes to change? No one does...I didn't want any part of anything that required any extraneous EFFORT. I mean COME ON! WHO NEEDS THE EXTRA STRESS!!! You know what? I had it ALL WRONG! I had it backwards.....
Well...I didn't figure it out until I found Isshinryu. IT CHANGED EVERYTHING! I don't know what DID IT, but... Isshinryu stresses the fortification of oneself to overcome personal deficiencies & weaknesses; and somewhere deep down inside I did want to improve, and I did want to learn, and I did want to get stronger. we all do 'cause we're all human!... I found that, Isshinryu emphasizes effort, honor, fairness, comradery, family, and clean living, with humility and respect for all people. That was so real for me to pass up and in my face, and possessed such an authentic value that inspired something in me that I couldn't describe.
This version of Okinawan karate placed a strong emphasis on lifestyle, rather than commercialism,. They didn't care about convincing me , they knew they had something special and if I didn't want to get involved they could not have cared less. They just wanted to share what they had with me, and that was cool. Do I want to enroll you, or convince you to try it?...I'm not gonna lie, I do want you to try it, but solely because I want you to experience something special, I believe that it's about sharing an awesome experience called ISSHINRYU KARATE, an experience I'm really excited about !!! Hopefully I've spiked your curiosity and you might want to learn more about Isshinryu, and what it can do for you.
We hope that you're paying close attention, because just as in self defense and in life; "Opportunity always favors those who are best prepared". Are you prepared? I hope so!.....All I've got to say is that training in Isshinryu will change your lifeWILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!...Let me tell you a little more and I promise to keep it short.

10 UNIQUE ASPECTS OF THE ISSHINRYU KARATE SYSTEM
- Isshinryu favors the vertical punch for its structural integrity and versatility, rather than the more common twist karate punch.
- Isshinryu favors blocking with the muscle portion of the arm rather than the bone against bone blocks like most other traditional styles.
- Isshinryu favors practical, direct, no-nonsense techniques rather than flashy ones.
- Isshinryu favors a strong offense as the best defense; using blocks and strikes in an interchangeable manner.
- Isshinryu favors being up close and personal, but without going to the ground.
- Isshinryu favors shorter more practical stances rather than long exaggerated stances practiced for show.
- Isshinryu favors rapid fire snap techniques because they are faster and controlled speed produces power for a smaller person.
- Example: 5 full power snap punches can be delivered in a third of the time it takes to deliver 5 full power twist punches.
- Isshinryu favors a 50/50 mix of the use of hands and feet, snap kicking no higher than the waist to avoid losing one's balance.
- Isshinryu favors naturalness as you will not have an opportunity to stretch before someone attacks you.
