Brief Description of Yoseikan Karate Association U.K
Yoseikan Karate is a unique blend of the traditional Japanese Martial Arts. It combines techniques of throwing the opponent as with Judo, locking and restraining the opponent as with Jujitsu. Controlling and neutralizing the opponent as with Aikido and striking the opponent with techniques as used in Karate employing the hands and feet as natural weapons.
Yoseikan Karate is our foundation art and the first element of our system to be learnt, Yoseikan Karate remaining true to its original Budo form avoiding sporting competition and training as a Traditional Japanese Mixed Martial Art.
Training purely as a combative art - not sport, its aim is not only to prepare the student to deal with all types of aggressive physical assault, but also to help develop and polish the students character.
Chris Clarry, Shihan 8th Dan Chief Instructor and Examiner for the Yoseikan Karate Association U.K. has over 48 years Martial Arts training experience behind him and even to this day continues to promote the name of Yoseikan in honour of our founder,
Master Minoru Mochizuki 10th Dan Yoseikan Japan.
