Open Style Karate is a system for teaching a methodology that combines the most modern, and up to date methods, and knowledge, of self defense training with the traditional principles of determination, respect, honor, self discipline and courage.  Black Belts are available, usually, within 3 to 5 years of training.

With Open Style karate, the instructor is free to teach whatever is best for the student, regardless of the source. For instance, our beginners learn boxing punches and kickboxing blocks, as well as the traditional karate kicks. As Bruce lee said “Your way may not be my way.” We are free to do whatever is best for the student’s progress, without the interference of an unchangeable style or a master from another country.
