About Us

Authentic Martial Arts Training

We teach Ken Shin Kan Shorin Ryu karate and are chartered by the Okinawa Shorin Ryu Matsumura Orthodox Karate and Kobudo Federation.

View our History and Lineage page for more information.

Our name reflects our desire to be better each day than we were the day before. "Kaizen" is the Japanese word for "Improvement." This journey to be our best is one that many have undertaken and is also reflected in an old Japanese proverb: "Fall seven times and stand up eight."

Real-World Self-Defense

Our style is useful in real-world situations. It began in Okinawa to equip the bodyguards to the Ryukyu emperor. Techniques from our style have been incorporated into the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP).

Martial arts offers these physical benefits:

  • Ability to defend against an attack
  • Increased Core Strength and Flexibility
  • Improved Stamina
  • Other Physical Benefits, such as weight loss and improved muscle tone, depending upon the individual
