Welcome to American Heritage Goju Karate-Do, sponsored by the Mt. Pleasant Recreation Dept.
Your introduction to Martial Arts will be an exciting, rewarding and positive experience. American Heritage Goju Karate-Do, with roots from China, Okinawa, Japan and America focuses on health and fitness for complete wellness, with non-violent and peaceful alternatives to conflict, learning respect for one’s self and others, self confidence, discipline and control. A positive attitude towards achievement and excellence are just two of our many goals.
The goal of our program is to have students grow as individuals, feel good about themselves and to continually strive to develop a positive image at school, work and home. This enables them to be successful in life. Enrolling in our community program is different from other Martial Arts schools because we encourage you to participate in every class. You are always working with someone, either a partner or in a group. Lastly, we care about your overall health and growth. At any age, our training will work for you. If you have any question pertain-ing to your training, please feel free to speak with one of our very qualified male or female instructors either before or after any class.
All of our exciting and high energy programs are specifically designed by American Heritage Goju Karate-Do for students ages 6 through adult. Students will develop a stronger and healthier body, mind and spirit with our effective exercise routine. All classes are held Monday and Wednesday evenings.
