The Tenkara Dojo
Traditional Japanese Martial Arts
What is Tenkara?
Tenkara is a Japanese word which can be translated as “The Point of Origin” or “The Beginning”. Tenkara Karate is a Japanese style of karate with its roots based firmly in tradition – originating from Seido and Kokorokan. Tenkara training is comprehensive with special emphasis placed on love, respect, and discipline. In the Japanese tradition, classes are taught in Japanese and consist of traditional Japanese forms, self-defense, sparring, endurance and strength conditioning. Weapons are also taught starting at the rank of Black Belt.
Tenkara endeavors to develop Karateka (karate students) of strong moral character as well as reinforce positive values which will transcend the dojo walls into everyday life.
