About Taishin Karate

Taishin Karate is a form of karate started by Mr. Scott Walls. The name Taishin can be broken down like this: Tai (endure or persevere) Shin (core or heart) and karate means empty hand. The name implies that practitioners of this style of karate have persistence about them; they can endure, sweat and pay the price to get to a better place in their life. Without some level of suffering or hardship, joy and peace are difficult to experience. Karate training is about improving oneself and helping others while learning an effective way to defend yourself. By gaining knowledge in self-defense and conditioning ones body, a person can live peacefully, without fear.

Taishin Karate training teaches people to believe in themselves and to become more confident in their ability. Karate training should be challenging and push people to their limits; yet it also needs to be intriguing and fun or the student will not continue. Karate also needs to be usable for the student, or it is really a waste of time.

Taishin Karate is a system of unarmed self-defense that allows a person of any size or ability to practice and defend themselves if needed. Taishin has its roots in Okinawan Karate. Katas such as Sanchin, Sei San and San Sei Ryu are still practiced even though they are very old. These katas are practiced to preserve the art and learn the movements. Integration of the ancient ways with more modern techniques such as evasion and simple defensive tactics is the essence of Taishin Karate.

In class students can expect to do exercises, drills, games, forms and practice with a partner to learn the many different aspects of this style. Students can start at anytime and no previous experience is necessary.
