The Martial Arts were originally aimed toward life preservation and self-defense, but today people of all ages come to us from all walks of life, each with their own reasons for wanting to train at the Winning Edge. Some want to learn self-defense, others want to compete in tournaments, some ask to become physically fit and others just want to have fun.

W.E. C.A.R.E.
In light of the escalating violence towards children and the increase in child abductions, WINNING EDGE has developed a program designed to teach children safety awareness, danger avoidance and the physical skills necessary to protect themselves and afford them an opportunity of escape.  Winning Edge Child Awareness and Rapid Escape provides the necessary skills children need to physically, mentally and most importantly, emotionally defend themselves from child predators.  It is our sincere hope that through our program we can deter these crimes against children and pray that their personal safety never becomes an issue.  All Instructors of the W.E.  C.A.R.E. program are certified and have undergone specialized training in the area of child safety. They are dedicated to teaching our children how to be personally strong involving their own safety and have been chosen for their demonstrated desire to protect our youth.

Karate – Best Self Defence

Karate is practiced as an art, as sport, as a combat sport, or as self defense training. Traditionally karate gives more emphasis on self-development while the modern Japanese style gives more importance on the psychological elements incorporated into a proper kokoro (attitude) such as perseverance, fearlessness, virtue, and leadership skills.

The training of the sport commonly consists of kihon (basics or fundamentals), kata (forms), and kumite (sparring). Different styles give varying importance on kihon. Typically this is performance in unison of a technique or a combination of techniques by a group of karateka. Kihon may also be prearranged drills in smaller groups or in pairs.

Kata means literally “shape” or “model.” Kata is a formalized sequence of movements which represent various offensive and defensive postures. These postures are based on idealized combat applications. The applications when applied in a demonstration with real opponents are referred to as a Bunkai. The Bunkai shows how every stance and movement is used. Bunkai is a useful tool to understand a kata. To achieve a formal rank the karateka must show competent performance of specific required kata for that level.

Sparring in Karate is called kumite. It literally means “meeting of hands.” Kumite is practiced both as a sport and as self-defense training. Levels of physical contact during sparring vary considerably. Knockdown karate (such as Kyokushin) uses full power techniques to bring an opponent to the ground. In kickboxing variants the preferred win is by knockout. Sparring in armour, bogu kumite, allows full power techniques with some safety.

In structured kumite (yakusoku, prearranged), two participants perform a choreographed series of techniques with one striking while the other blocks. In free sparring (Jiyu Kumite), the two participants have a free choice of scoring techniques. The allowed techniques and contact level are primarily determined by sport or style organization policy, but might be modified according to the age, rank and sex of the participants.

Free sparring in karate is performed in a marked or closed area and in light contact or semi contact kumite, points are awarded based on the criteria: good form, sporting attitude, vigorous application, awareness/zanshin, good timing and correct distance. In full contact karate kumite, points are based on the results of the impact, rather than the formal appearance of the scoring technique.
