At Gloucester Karate Academy, our goal is to make our students more successful in life through their study of karate. We help our students achieve their true potential by providing a professional and friendly atmosphere for people of all ages to develop physically and mentally to reach their personal goals.
Uechi-Ryu karate consists of three related areas of training:
Training of the Body to include flexibility, coordination, balance, strength, speed and stamina.
Training of the Mind to include concentration, awareness, emotional discipline, confidence and serenity.
Training in Self Defense to include timing, distancing, accuracy, and psychological principles of fighting.
The real value of our curriculum is that whatever is learned on the dojo floor can be directly applied to one’s life outside the karate school. Whether it’s the confidence to make that presentation at work or the patience to deal with interpersonal conflict in order to encourage a peaceful & productive outcome, your karate training can help you develop the skills necessary to approach any of life’s challenges in a positive manner.
