Dear Karate-ka,
Welcome to the IKIKA website.

I hope you find your visit to this website informative and interesting enough for you to return.There are many reasons to train in a martial art. Of course there is the issue of personal protection.
As Karate-ka, we enjoy the exploration of movements, attitudes, principles, and training procedures which can keep us and others from harm in times of danger.
Our organization is unique with teaching methods, where you are not just a member, but also part of a family of martial artists striving for excellence. Each member here at our organization is an important part of this learning community. There is much more to Karate than mere sport, fighting or competition. I sincerely believe that Karate is a life long study, ultimately learning about oneself through the rigors of constant training, challenge, success and failures. We sincerely believe in teaching with integrity, respect and believe that positive results indeed can be achieved through trust, mutual understanding and most importantly "enthusiasm".

Why Karate?

Martial Arts is  a practice that develops character, humanity, gratitude, charity, confidence, self esteem, self control, determination, patience, temperance and a sense of obligation to pass on what is learned. No other physical discipline offers so much.

Spiritual organizations and religions strive to import these qualities on their members and students as well, but the art of Karate also develops and enhances physical abilities that would take a multitude of sports to develop students improve balance, coordination, muscle tone, cardio-vascular conditioning, timing, rhythm, hand-eye coordination, hand-foot coordination, and flexibility. Complex neural pathways are developed through the study of Karate that also give students an advantage in every other physical activity.

All that, and self defense as well.
