“Do not strike others, and do not allow others to strike you. The goal is peace without incident.”
The Karate World Heiwakan of Old Saybrook, Connecticut seeks to instill self-confidence, coordination, physical fitness and discipline in all those interested in practicing a traditional martial-art. The discipline achieved in practicing the art of Okinawan Goju-ryu Karate-do will last a lifetime, be it in school, at work or during leisure. The Heiwakan formally opened its doors on March 1, 1977 and has been involved with the shoreline community and southern Connecticut ever since.
