At New Way Martial Arts we believe Karate is training for the mind, perhaps even more so than training for physical performance. Our program is designed to improve focus, awareness, observation, patience, and mental processing. This training is important for students of all ages. We emphasize a balanced approach to training your mind and spirit; there is no lack of focus on improving our physical stamina, strength, balance, and agility. While sport and competition is a part of what we do, it is secondary to karate as a means of personal development. Karate is for life; it will help you to be safe, to endure, to succeed, and to grow. It is our goal to create in every student an indomitable spirit to overcome all obstacles and achieve their absolute best.
Karate is a striking art using punching, kicking, knee strikes, elbow strikes and open hand techniques such as knife-hands, spear-hands, and palm-heel strikes. Along side with these variety of techniques there is an dedicated focus on personal development as well. With every rank we have a seven stripe system that focuses on the samurai code of ethics known as Bushido. Courage, Compassion, Politeness, Honesty/Sincerity, Respect, Honor, and Justice are the seven codes of Bushido. Every student needs to know these concepts and ideals. It is required to demonstrate such concepts both in class and in every day life to improve in rank as well as in character.
