Our Karate Classes
At Empty Hand Martial Arts, the core of our training is Traditional Okinawan Goju Karate Do. Goju Karate is a close quarters fighting system emphasizing strikes, kicks, circular defence, joint manipulation, grappling, throws and pressure points. Traditional Karate is non-competitive, non-comparative and non-judgemental. It is a personal journey unique to each who begins.

Train Like a Fighter
Training like a fighter is more than exercise, it’s a form of self-expression that trains your mind, body and spirit. Training like a fighter works your whole body top to bottom and front to back with a focus on core muscle development which unifies the body for functional and usable strength. Live Life Strong!
