Gōjū-ryū (剛柔流?)

At Heartland Family Karate our goal is to teach you the art of Gōjū-ryū (Japanese for “hard-soft style”). Our emphasis is upon the improvement of the mind, body and spirit.
We train hard and study a well rounded, traditional style of martial arts that is appropriate for all ages.

Our Style

Gōjū-ryū (剛柔流?) is a traditional Okinawan style that incorporates both circular and linear movements into its curriculum. It combines hard striking attacks such as kicks and close hand punches with softer open hand circular techniques for attacking, blocking, and controlling the opponent. It includes locks, grappling, takedowns and throws and was founded by the Okinawan Karate Master, Chōjun Miyagi.
