The martial arts for Teens & adults is a health routine you can stick with providing physical fitness, stress relief, better focus and concentration, balance and flexibility, and self-defense skills.

        

What Style of Martial Arts Do You Teach?

We teach Shinka-Ryu Karate-Do at Pacific Integrated Martial Arts. Students begin with Shudokan style basic karate techniques then advance with Aikido, Boxing, Jiu Jitsu, Hapkido, and Goju Ryu. Belt rank can also be earned in Brailian Jiu-Jitsu or Chon-Tu Kwan Hapkido.

What Is Taught?

Students are taught karate basic techniques found in karate. These consist of blocks, strikes, kicks, stances, and forms (prearranged sequences of movements). At the same time, over time, students are introduced techniques, principles, and strategies from other arts. For example, from Boxing, we learn mobility, ducking, weaving, slipping, and conditioning. From Chon-Tu Kwon Hapkido we learn how to fall, do rolls, and take-downs. From Jiu Jitsu students learn joint locks and take-downs. Students also have the option of studying various martial art weapons such as Eskrima, Nunchaku, Kama, Sai, Fan and the Bo.

What Are The Benefits To The Student?

The initial benefits are physical conditioning, stress reduction and a sense of well-being gained through the hard workouts and the friendships gained in a healthy environment.

You will learn to use your body and mind when exercising. You will learn techniques of self-defense from several martial arts that will enable you to utilize your own individual natural abilities to best defend yourself. You will learn more about yourself, your strengths, your weaknesses, and how to further improve yourself at your own pace.

Do I Have To Break Boards?

Board breaking is generally reserved for more advanced students. It is a means of testing your strength using techniques. It confirms to the individual their ability to actually apply a destructive force with their chosen techniques. It is optional and students may elect to be excused due to various reasons (i.e. occupational requirement for manual dexterity such as a surgeon, pianist, typist, etc).

Do I Have To Fight, Spar, or Grapple?

Safety is always our very first concern. Students are encouraged to begin exercises or drills for sparring soon after beginning however they are not permitted to "point spar" until their instructors have verified both their knowledge of proper technique but also superior self-control when striking toward other students. Also, ALL sparring is done with proper foam safety equipment (including headgear, shins, hands, feet, groin for men, and mouth guards for all students.

What Do I Wear?

The karate uniform is a comfortable loose fitting 2 piece outfit. It is very functional. The cotton material helps wick away moisture which helps keep the body cooler. The lapels are reinforced so that we can practice self-defense against opponents who grab our collars. A white uniform is worn for students under black belt. This can be purchased from PIMA or any maker as long as it is in the style of a Karate uniform. A uniform is not necessary for the first month.


How Long Does It Take To Reach Black Belt?

The answer generally depends on the individual and how many hours per week they are able to consistently spend training and in practice. The typical healthy student can achieve black belt in 5 years. The important thing to realize is that all students can achieve a "black belt attitude" towards personal development. This attitude can be achieved in a much shorter length of time.

How Often Should I Attend Class?

It is recommended that the student attend at least two regular classes each week. With regular attendance the student gets a strong grasp of the material. They should also practice outside of class times to ensure retention. With the busy schedules of teens and adults we understand if attendance is less than this. It simply takes longer to qualify to test.

How Often Do They Test for Rank Advancement?

Teens and adults can earn belt rank in Shinka-Ryu Karate-Do. Testing is conducted routinely 3 times a year. However, not all students test each time. Beginners initially test after 12 classes.  Testing then occurs every four months after 24 classes. Testing is dependent on 3 elements: 1) Number of classes attended, students must attend a certain number of classes to be ready to test 2) Proficiency in the techniques for their rank 3) Attitude and home/school report of the student.


What does it cost?
