MASTERCLASS SEMINAR SERIES

Yahara 1st USA SEMINAR

(4 Volume Set 90 min each)

By Mikio Yahara


Yahara Sensei's karate philosophy is based on the conviction that karate is an art dedicated to developing ippon technique- the ability to deliver a single killing blow, and that Budo is founded on the ability to stake one’s life in a split second executing an offensive or defensive technique. We strive towards these goals, which are very different from the types of sports karate that are increasingly commonplace.

Yahara Karate Budo Kun

The Way of Karate is lifelong art by which we combine spirit and technique to deeply enrich our lives.  


1. Stay true to your core goal.

                    2. Deliver the single overpowering strike.

         3. Live each moment to the fullest.

            4. Accept a glancing blow to prevail.

               5. Embrace courage, effort and virtue.


The essence of Yahara Budo Karate is profound and as such is a lifelong undertaking - never fully mastered but always open to new discovery.


“My mindfulness is nourished by actually fighting.  In other words, getting through the battlefield leads to mindfulness.”   Grandmaster Yahara 2017
