Sanchin-Ryu Karate
More than Just punches and kicks

For more than 40 years, Sanchin-Ryu Karate has taught it's peace-seeking approach to karate. Sanchin-Ryu was founded with one vision: To provide people of all ages and backgrounds the opportunity to experience the benefits of martial art study in a safe, positive, non-competitive environment. Through the decades we have not only stayed very true to our original philosophy, but we also have made our outstanding instruction affordable; two to ten times less expensive than the average martial art school in America.
