Innovative Stress Reliever!

Martial Arts and the Professional. Karate. What is Karate? Karate is not only a form of self-defense, but also a form of self-preservation. It preserves the bogged down mind of a stressed person. It relieves stress and stimulates the mind and body. The next question one might ask, is what type of karate? What sets it apart from other styles? The advantages of Isshinryu over other styles are speed, versatility, and sensibility. Another positive would be that Isshinryu is realistic its based on Master Shimabukus principle that man and woman are two. Their interactions, the third element makes the offspring. This creative process compelled Master Shimabuku to create Isshinryu from the interaction of opposite styles he had mastered Shorin ryu and Goju ryu.
