We teach a traditional Okinawan-style of karate called Isshin-ryū founded in 1956 by Grand Master Tatsuo Shimabuku. Isshin-ryū is a union of of Shorin-ryū karate, Gojū-ryū karate, and kobudō (traditional weapons such as bo, sai, and tonfa). Our training includes 50/50 hands and feet and practical street oriented strikes, blocks, and joint manipulations. Isshin-ryū karate has been taught to the U.S marines on account of its natural stances, snap punches and kicks, and overall practicality. Our Dojo is registered with the Okinawa Isshinryu Karate Kobudo Association (OIKKA) which acknowledges Bennati's as an official Isshin-ryū Dojo in both Japan and Okinawa.
