A Chat with Hanko Ryu Martial Arts
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Class is run by a sixth-dan martial arts expert and combines intense cardio, karate drills, floor/core work and properly taught punching and kicking techniques that carry over to self-defense. Men and women of all fitness levels are welcome.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
Every class is different. We cross train, add self-defense, change up the equipment, spar each other, and use bags and focus pads. Students feel a change in fitness and body shape within a month with three classes a week. Classes are set to music, and the highly motivating instructor is from Rome.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Kyoshi Torri has a passion for teaching Shito Ryu karate-do and Okinawan weapons. He is a full time sensei with 39 years of training experience. He is patient with children and has a unique mix of discipline and kindness that motivates youngsters and adults alike.
What do you love most about your job?
_Watching students gain confidence, school skills, and fitness and life skills through martial arts. Honor, courage, respect, and discipline are at the core of our mission.
