Dedicated to enhancing our students
Learning a martial art can be the memorizing of moves, but at Diaz Isshinryu Karate & Kobudo we focus on teaching our students much more. Martial arts are, in some respects, a way of life. We do not mean that certain individuals earn a living from being in matches or teaching. Martial arts is a way of life because it practices mindfulness. When you practice a strike, a throw, or an exercise, the goal is to understand your body and be one with the movement. Eventually, the goal is to, in time, be completely present at the moment and learn how to bring out that amount of centeredness when you need it. All the stresses in your life become much more manageable when you know how to find your center and understand that you have the mental tools you need to overcome the problem.
