Okinawan Karate Self-Defense

ID : 48068   
« back to classes page
A study of weaponless self-defense and conflict resolution through the practice of the ancient and time tested martial art of Okinawan Shorin-Ryu Karate.  Learn how to prevail and defend against an attacker that may be armed with a weapon.  Practice the usage of the body's limbs, hands, and feet as blocks and strikes and learn how to generate the power needed for self-defense by way of bio mechanics, regardless of one's size or physical stature.  These classes will be taught by Sid Rayford, a 9th Degree Black belt with 46 years of training and his wife, Amy Rayford who is well known in the martial arts community as a female self-defense specialist with 16 years of training.  Shorin-Ryu is known to be the "old school" of karate which comes from the feudal era of Okinawan history.  This martial art has been around for centuries and is not for competition, but is instead dedicated to surviving diverse attacks.
