PhilosophyWe start studying and practicing in our studio, but it doesn't end there, as our quest is to take your training "out of the studio and into the world."
At United Karate Centers (UKC), our curriculum goes beyond physical techniques, including interesting writing and/or filmmaking projects, project-based leadership training, community service, and familiarity with methods of peaceful conflict resolution. As students progress they're certainly challenged physically, but the martial arts, like life, is so much more than just technique. If you're looking for something wonderfully creative, exciting, steeped in tradition, but relevant to the here and now, please come visit us!
Hapkido BlendUnited Karate Centers incorporates a combination of techniques and principles from a variety of martial arts styles, including Hapkido, Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Tae Kwon Do, Kali, Kobudo, Wing Chun and weapons, all of which provides our students with a well-balanced, "streetsmart" self-defense system. Many other styles of martial arts tend to focus on just individual areas of self-defense. Combining the best of many styles into a blended system, gives UKC students the advantage they need to protect themselves in virtually any situation.
More than any other sport, Karate gives children, juniors and adults, the chance to explore their innate powers. Marvel as you increase in strength, flexibility, endurance, balance, and harmony. This is only the start. Physical skills act as a foundation for something much more important: the development of value skills, both mental and spiritual.
