THE FULL STORY
Education. Exploration. Satisfaction.
Chito-Ryu is a traditional Japanese style of Karate. It offers self defense training as well as excellent physical conditioning. The students develop a greater sense of self-confidence, focus and learn to respect themselves and others. The karate classes are fun and interactive; no special athletic ability or skill is required. Chito-Ryu can be practiced by anyone that has the motivation to improve themselves. Our style develops a well rounded fighter. It teaches striking, blocking, throws, joint locks, offensive and defensive attacks as well as rolls and break falls. We also offer a strong sport karate opportunity through Karate Manitoba, there's no limit to how far you can take the competition side of the art.
Adam Lee Hamm and Alex Jay Hamm are the lead instructors at the Winnipeg Chito-Ryu Karate School.
Both Adam and Alex joined Chito-Ryu Karate in 1991 in Calgary Alberta. And with much support from their father and their amazing team of instructors, they trained diligently for ten years granting them both black belts at some of the youngest ages in the style. Alex being 16 at the time and Adam being 18.
Since then the brothers made the move to Winnipeg Manitoba where their goal is to maintain the same ambition and training expertise that was instilled in them from the Calgary Chito-Ryu club.
Both Adam and Alex strongly believe in the respect and honor principles that this style teaches. Each bring a different but complementary outlook into the class training.
Adam leans more to the philosophical and traditional side of Chito-Ryu and Alex is an enthusiast of sport karate and real practical use of techniques. Together they insure you'll have a well rounded education that is both peaceful yet practical and strong yet controlled.
