Christian Karate

We are a ministry that supports the local Church in discipleship and outreach. Our main focus concerning God's Word is to know it and apply it to our lives. We do not get into specific church doctrines, or emphasize one denomination over another, or try to influence people to attend one church over another. Our Statement of Faith reflects the parameters in which we minister.

Our main objective at Seigido Ryu is self-defense. Students of Seigido Ryu will become well rounded in both skill and knowledge, being able to adapt effectively to many different situations. Kyoshi DeAngelo trained in a number of different Martial Arts styles which naturally had an influence in the development of Seigido Ryu.

Seigido Ryu is a unique blend of traditional Karate with a kick-boxing influence and traditional Ju-Jitsu with an Aikido influence. Both Seigido Ryu Karate and Ju-Jitsu are easily interchangeable. In defending oneself the student can instantly change or blend their skills to adapt to their situation.
