About this pro

Our club meets every Thursday evening at the Baierl Family YMCA, one half mile from the Wexford Exit of Route 79, about 20 minutes north of the city of Pittsburgh.  Practical Street Defense and Isshinryu Karate for teens and adults begins at 8 pm. All classes are taught by Isshinryu black belts with a minimum of 35 years of experience in the martial arts. The class focuses on Isshinryu Karate but incorporates Thai Boxing, Krav Maga, Jiu-Jitsu, and other elements as well. We do conditioning and cardio work and emphasize all elements of personal self defense. Look for us on Facebook at North Pittsburgh Isshinryu Karate.
