"Practice in tradition is the foundation of this style of karate, rather than a display for tournament."
Anshin School of Karate has developed well structured, focused programs and classes built on traditional Karate, designed for both children and adults of all ages. Classes are held for children ages 3-9, children ages 10-17, and adults 17+. We also teach street defense!
These programs help teach children self control, respect for themselves and others, sportsmanship, inner strength and bully proofing. Students have been shown to improve their academic performance, achieve better grades in school and a stronger ability to say "NO" to peer pressure.
For adults, our programs are great for stress relief, flexibility, weight loss, self defense, confidence and increasing energy. Also, they are tons of fun!
High ranking, fully qualified, registered Black Belt instructors."Your safety is our priority!"

We hope to post pictures soon!
Thank You Sensei Baehr
The seminar last weekend was a success! Thank you Sensei Baehr for sharing with us your vast knowledge on the rich history of our style and your experiences. This two day seminar was very informative and included invaluable information on the history of Matsubayashi Shorin Ryu and its creator Grandmaster Shoshin Nagamine, but also on his son Soke Takyoshi Nagamine. Tony also gave a wonderful presentation on the history of Matsubayashi Kobudo, and Sensei Trombley did a great job with kata workouts and applications. We are thankful for all the support and dedication to those who attended, including our friends from Ohio -- Terrance, Lucy, Jeorge and Amir. We look forward to many more seminars in the future.
Congratulations to all the students who successfully passed their grading and got their new belts on October 16th. We have a new addition of two black belts, and others who have graded into higher ranking, but also many of the kyu belts who have worked hard these past few months have moved onto the next level. Congratulations to everyone! Keep up the good work.
