“The ultimate aim of the art of Karate lies not in victory or defeat
but in the perfection of the characters of its participants.”  
--Gichin Funakoshi

There are dozens of reasons to study karate.
It’s a demanding physical workout that builds strength and encourages cardiovascular health and fitness. It helps to develop coordination, focus and agility, and teaches patience, discipline and humility. Based on an ancient code of honor and respect, it can encourage non-violent conflict resolution, build confidence and boost self-esteem. 
No doubt, physical strength and mental toughness are important. But those two things are not enough. At Golden Knights, we understand that reaching milestones and achieving belts are only part of the journey. 

That’s why at Golden Knights, we don’t just teach karate—we develop people.
