Ft Davis Isshinryu Karate Club

Fort Davis Recreation Center 1400 41st St., SE Washington, DC 20019,


Korogaru Ishi ni Koke Musazu
Perseverance pays off; patience is a virtue

We teach Isshinryu karate to teenagers and adults. Our goal is to teach the art and the esteemed code of conduct that goes along with it. We also welcome other styles to train with us and experience the Isshinryu difference. The Isshinryu style is a combat style and is known for its strong fighters. We also teach weapons which include Bo, Sai and tonfa. We have Black belts who have more than 20 years of experience and who are members of Isshinryu World Karate Association (IWKA) , Hovey's Kan Dojo Association (IOTKA) and Okinawan Isshinryu Karate Association (OIKA).
Isshinryu Katas differs slightly by Organization. The IWKA, Isshinryu Brotherhood (IB) and OIKA all show some differences in their Katas. Even people who claim to follow these organizations do not always practice the same things. It really is not that important for personal development. The basic foundation and principles are the things, which need to be learned.


Literally: If a person has ambition, things will be accomplished
