Modern and classical Karate as taught at Claycomb Academy is a dynamic and effective method of training that is practical for self-defense, easy to learn for any age and art it is applicable in realistic situations. Karate has proven as an art through the ages to improve your fitness levels and overall health by developing a well-rounded combative and fighting skill set.
Due to the emphasis of sport over the last several decades, karate has lost its core effectiveness as a method of street self-defense due to the fact that most schools focus on point-based tournaments. At claycomb academy (CKA) We are committed to preserving the integrity of the art by teaching the techniques and philosophies that ensure karate’s effectiveness where it matters most whether in the STREET OR in the RING or CAGE.
In our dojo, We teach a veery specialized style of Karate that is traditional in its fundamental techniques and form of yet MODERN in the methodology in how we teach it. OUR system of Karate-do is adapted for effectiveness in real street self-defense situations as well as MMA competitions. It utilizes traditional techniques such as punches, knees, kicks and elbows, evasive footwork, along with various takedowns and submissions too.
"Training begins and ends with a bow of respect."

"The ultimate aim of karate lies not in victory nor defeat, but in the perfection of the character of its participants ”
