This Reality Based Self-Defense Program blends close quarter classical Shotokan karate strikes with the science of sports physiology. This simple, safe and easy-to-learn program uses intuitive movements that anyone can do regardless of physical ability. Training will be done at a slow pace to avoid injury. Students will learn to accurately target vulnerable structures and areas of the human body. The program’s goal is to build muscle memory to later recall and use when needed. It is devastatingly effective, even against bigger or stronger attackers. Prior experience in any martial art is suggested.

The style of our club is Shotokan Karate. We believe it takes extreme courage to do great things. We are the karate club that believes in the power of the human spirit, therefore, we teach everyone; from those with limited mobility, to the gifted athlete. We have the courage to see the beauty and power inside all of us. We strive to bring out the greatness inside of ourselves and others. We support and care for each other. The accomplishments of one are the accomplishments of us all! Tests are offered at the end of each session. If a student qualifies for a belt test there is a $15 fee (no fee for stripe tests).

Discounts given for signing up multiple family members. To receive discount, please register in-person at the front desk or email your receipt to khengels@barringtonparkdistrict.org.

For an additional $20/25, the student can practice two or more times per week. Please contact Kent Hengels for more information.
