Our mission is to make our students more successful in life through their practice of Karate-Do at Busho Kai Martial Arts & Fitness.

We do this by teaching our Karate style, Shito-ryu, as a complete discipline (mind, body, and spirit) which, in addition to developing physical defense, encourages the formation of high personal standards and respect for fellow men and women.

Through our practice and teaching, and our student culture, we strive daily to produce individuals who are positive, respected, and contributing members of our society.
