Ken Zen Ichi Nyo

"The Fist and Zen as One"

Matsubayashi-ryu strives to cultivate within the practitioner a sincere pursuit of character. 

"Karate is self training in perfection, a means whereby a man may obtain that expertise in which there is not the thickness of a hair between a man and his deed. It is a training in efficiency. It is a training in self-reliance. It's rewards are here and now, for it enables a person to meet any situation with exactly the right expenditure of effort, neither too much nor too little, and it gives him control of his otherwise wayward mind so that neither physical danger from without nor rampant passion from within can dislodge him." 

- O'Sensei, Shoshin Nagamine

Karate-do is a Physical Art

"Steady and hard efforts can produce miracles" 

- O'Sensei Shoshin Nagamine

Through diligent practice and sweat and hard work in the dojo we forge an indomitable spirit that translates into both physical and mental endurance in all of our endeavors. Training in traditional Okinawan Karate-do means developing the body as a weapon. This requires both the development of technique as well as the development of physical attributes for effectiveness; strength, endurance, flexibility, and suppleness.  We apply methods in our training sessions including bodyweight exercises, weight training implements, and body conditioning drills. Training through traditional methods requires patience, perseverance, and humility. We cannot promise to make you the strongest. We cannot promise to make you a good fighter. We do promise that, in our training sessions, you will sweat.
