Karate translates to “empty hand”. Kyokushin is a style of Karate developed by Mas Oyama based upon courtesy, respect and diligence and is known for its hard training and full contact sparring and translates to “ultimate truth”. Performance Fitness is in N.A.K.O. under Kancho Henrioh. Kyokushin is more than just punching and kicking, it is a mindset, it’s about instilling the Positive “yes I can” attitude and teaches you that, no matter what obstacle lies in front of you, anything is possible with a lot of hard work.
DT Lab is years of practical self-defense techniques put into intense, heart pumping exercise. In DT Lab, there are no uniforms, rank, or contact. You wear whatever is comfortable for you, usually sweats and T-shirts. We do require a cross-training type of shoe that has not been worn outdoors. At first, you will be shown proper ways to strike to get maximum results without injury, the proper way to fall and get back up. Class will start with a light warm-up and be followed by stretching, then, go into timed circuit training, very similar to crossfit. Class will end with a cool down stretch and a self-defense technique.
