KArate: More than self defense
Shudokan Karate-Do is an Okinawan style of karate with a strong focus on practical self defense, sustainable lifelong training, and on cultivating community. Y.S.K. was built around the study of karate, but our school has grown to incorporate several martial arts, including Yang Taichi, Aikido, Batto-Do (Japanese sword), and kickboxing. No matter the class, our instructors focus on more than punching and kicking. Respect, kindness, patience, and perseverance are at the forefront of every training session.
Classes for everyone
At Y.S.K., we pride ourselves on bringing fun, effective martial arts to people of diverse backgrounds. Whether you are hoping to help your four year old blow off some steam, or you are interested in the slow relaxation of taichi, Yakima School of Karate has a class for you!
