The 23rd of January will see the Ryukenkan open it’s doors for the 22nd year in Tauranga. While we haven’t always been called Ryukenkan, we have always taught the best Ryukyu Kempo Karate and Kobudo available.
This year, classes have been specially redesigned to focus on building better habits. We’ve been working on this in the background for quite some time now and through research and testing we’ve identified the key components that build strong habits, so what better place to start than the beginning of a new year?
We’ll be focusing on delivering the best Ryukyu Kempo training to all our members. Our curriculum is built on decades of studying the traditional Life Protection practices of Okinawan Martial Arts. The key difference comes from the history of Okinawa itself and how the leadership respected the people. Life Protection is about protecting all life, not just your own. It’s about putting others first. It’s about building strong people who are supported by positive habits. It’s about finding the things in your life that do not meet your standards for excellence and changing, replacing or rebuilding those things so they fit your ultimate life goals and help build a better person. All of this is done through the study of a centuries old martial art from an ancient people.
We’ve redesigned our class format to include traditional, proven exercise methods. We’ve added fitness goals that develop with our students. We’ve developed learning materials that help students understand the meaning of Life Protection and how it can be used to improve the lives of everyone they com in contact with.
We’ve been really, really busy.
We have developed a Starter Pack which gives new students all the tools they need to get their feet firmly on the ground. The pack contains everything a beginner needs for their first 6 months of training. Uniform, belt, student manual and training tools – everything you need to get going in 2017.
If you’re looking for something new in 2017, looking for something that’s more than just sport or exercise, looking for a way to improve yourself and help the people around you, then get in contact and let us show you how it all happens.
