Retro Sport Karate is an elite form of martial arts training in both forms and sparring. Our innovative style is a fusion of Tae Kwon Do, Karate, and a Creative Martial Arts movement. By mixing the fundamentals of traditional martial arts, with the new age styling and techniques of today’s modern movement...That is how Retro Sport Karate got its name. Offering versatility and structure in a positive, professional environment, RSK provides quality instruction for all ages and abilities.
The inclusion of martial arts is beneficial for a variety of reasons. For example, it builds confidence, self-defense, discipline, physical health and fitness, as well as mental development. Martial art instills strong core values while teaching valuable leadership skills that should be applied to everyday life. At RSK, we do not practice the art to achieve selfish ends but to develop a well-being for ourselves, along with others.
