The driving principal behind WKA is that we are many warriors uniting as one for the causes of justice and righteousness. Our target population for this program is primarily disadvantage youth, from the inner city. These students are at a high risk to become gang members, felons, drug and alcohol abusers, young parents, or homeless before graduating high school. Through the practice of martial arts, self-defense and karate, WKA seeks to provide a safe outlet for these students that encourages self-discipline, self-esteem, and physical health and wellness of the mind, body and soul.
Throughout their time with WKA, participants will learn to live by a code of Bushido, meaning “the way of the warrior”. These codes are in line with Karate-Do, where one will apply these principles to their way of life and it will never leave them. Based on Shorin-Ryu/Matsubayashi- Ryu Karate, our self-defense teaching focuses on the principal of functionality. We do not train to fight but we train to defend oneself against an unprovoked attack. At WKA we believe that skill competition is only part of what warriors do and that the ultimate competition, or battle, lies within oneself. Thus, another major portion of the academy is to engage the minds of the students and teach them how to be of service to others. By adhering to the codes taught through practice and workshops, students will learn to bring balance and peace in their lives, as well as the lives of others.
