Our program trains the Koryukan style of martial arts and incorporates a central scholastic curriculum which includes Historical Arts, Philosophical Arts, Character Development, and Martial Sciences—Anatomical, Physiological, Sociological and Biological. This program, then, includes physical and academic studies.
The Koryukan style of martial arts brings together the essential practices and characteristics of karate-do, kobudo (traditional martial arts weapons such as bo staff and sword), jujutsu, Korean, Filipino & Chinese martial arts into an integral fighting system.
Literally translated from Japanese, ko 古 means old or ancient, ryu 竜 means school, and kan 館 means house or hall. Koryukan, then, is the home of the school of ancient ways. Fundamentally speaking, the Koryukan style draws upon the meanings, philosophies and disciplines of ancient knowledge in the development of its theories and science as practiced in the martial arts.
