At NRK Karate we carry the long legacy of traditional Karate directly from its birthplace in Okinawa, Japan. We teach Shorin-Ryu karate, which among the oldest styles of Karate, and serves as the basis for most modern styles of karate like Shotokan, Shito-Ryu and Wado-Ryu, as well as Korean styles like Tang Soo Do and Tae Kwon Do. Our system combines striking techniques, with grappling, throwing, and pressure point attacks making it one of the oldest of mixed martial arts.
Okinawa was know through out history as a neutral gateway to the various ancient asian nations. The Okinawan's primarily lived as farmers, and fisherman, and as such, most of the Okinawan weapons are improvised from tools. Their skills in improvisation and martial arts, enabled them to transform these typically mundane implements into powerful implements of self protection and the inspiration for modern weapons like the police riot baton. At NRK Karate, we continue this tradition.
NRK Karate is a member club of the USA National Karate Federation, the governing body of sport karate in the United States and the only competitive karate organization sanctioned by the US Olympic Committee (USOC). NRK Karate is proud to me San Marcos's only US Team recognized dojo, and one of very few in San Diego. Our student athletes travel to compete amongst the most elite karate competitors in the world in hopes to represent the United States in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan and beyond.
