Karate stresses the development of spirit, mind and body through discipline, practice and hard work. Instructor Sensei Park has been an instructor with the YMCA Karate program since 1979 and teaching at the YMCA since 1983. Sensei Park teaches Isshinryu karate, which is an Okinawan style that uses a balanced approach with half hand and half foot techniques. Isshinryu is practiced through chart-exercises, drills, katas (forms), self-defense techniques, and kumite (controlled fighting with pads).

Karate can be used to increase self-discipline and self-confidence through self-control and a positive attitude. Participants are tested periodically for promotion to different belt levels.

The Buckeye Valley Family YMCA offers Mighty Mights Karate for children 7-12 years old as well as Adult Karate classes for anyone 13 and over.
Learn discipline, self-confidence, and respect for others from Sensei Park. This program incorporates the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
