Mission Statement

Showa Our mission at Yoseikan Anderson is to develop strong minds and bodies, while preserving the teachings of Doctor Tsuyoshi Chitose (O-Sensei).  Through practicing Chito-Ryu karate, we believe that the character of each individual can be improved.  Respect, self discipline, courtesy, patience, and humility are some of the aspects of Chito-Ryu Karate that we strive to perfect.
While attempting to achieve thess goals, we will develop excellent training habits, technique and confidence that will last a lifetime.  Chito-Ryu is a lifelong endevour, one that will effect every aspect of daily life.  We take this responsibilty seriously, and will do our best to achieve these goals.
Gichin Funakoshi said it best "The ultimate aim of karate lies neither in victory nor defeat, but in the perfection of the character of it's participants."
