The concept of harmony is intended as self-awareness, balance and self-confidence: it inspires our activity aiming at physical and mental training of students with a social purpose.

Moreover, we are members of the Japan Karatedo Federation Wado-Kai and IKF – IKKAIDO, the international martial arts federation devoted to including people with a disability.

By practicing traditional karate in our dojos, gyms, schools and all projects promoting culture, recreation, social assistance – and even tourism and environment – we promote the well-being of people from every perspective – being it physical, mental, social and spiritual. In consistency with the modern spirit of Japanese Budō, we cultivate the huge educational potential of karate.
