A Chat with Virginia Okinawan Karate
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Easy to learn natural body movements Okinawans teach their country men/women. Great for women and men. We cooperate for quicker learning rather than compete to see who is toughest. Our instructor has 35+ years teaching karate to US Embassy security personnel, US Marines, and people just like you
What equipment is provided? Is there anything visitors need to bring?
Wear clothing for jogging, or yoga. Eventually you will want a white karate uniform. You may bring your own karate uniform, purchase one, or go without. Your choice. We sell medium weight all white uniforms at a low price. Yet there is no pressure to buy from us.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Karate is my life. I was a US diplomat for 30+ years to support my karate practice, teaching and learning. Everyone should learn karate for physical and mental exercise. Who knows, you may even need it one day!
What do you love most about your job?
Sharing the joy and passion of improving body movement. While this is initially a body development routine eventually you discover the much deeper inner meanings. Many old timers claim Karate is pathway between self-defense and self-discovery.
