Okinawa Karate is particularly self-defense and lifelong learning program

The whole training is focused on the development of physical and mental ability to resist the sudden attack. An important aspect of Okinawan Karate training is the emphasis on natural movement, which also has a therapeutic effect and helps people to live a healthy active and long life. The people of Okinawa are proof of that.

Okinawa Karate is a proven self-defense learning method for everyone no matter what is your actual physical condition and age.

A not so strong person can benefit from Okinawa Karate even more than someone who is already strong! However, it should be noted that there is no short way or quick method of learning self-defense. The good news is that one who has real internal motivation can gradually increase his skills to such an extent that he will multiply his current chances of succeeding against a real attack and thus defend his health and life.

About me

My name is Roman Křapka and I came to Frankfurt from the Czech Republic. I have been involved in martial arts since 1984. In 2006, I coincidentally had the opportunity to become acquainted with Okinawan Karate, and since then I have been intensively involved.
Before I came to Frankfurt, I led my own group of karate students in Prague, which was part of Shubukan Czech Republic and RBKA.

I am very happy to help you all who are sincerely interested in studying Okinawan Karate, step by step to develop your self-defense and physical skills through regular training, while at the same time achieving great satisfaction in achieving all-round personal growth.
