Gijomon-kai Karate

Our club practices Gijomon-kai, a karate style founded in 1977 by Yoshiji Kaku and introduced in Finland by Kim Isaksson in 1994. Gijomon signifies “duty first” or acting towards one’s duty.

In Gijomon-kai karate, the techniques practiced include various punches, kicks, blocks, control grips, throws, falls, and other self-defense techniques. In addition to combat, an important aspect of the discipline is the development of both physical and mental fitness, making karate a truly holistic form of exercise.
