About the Karate Club

The CCHS Karate Club strives to enrich the lives of all students through the teachings of Kyokushin Karate and educates each student in the virtues of discipline and humility.

Each student is given the tools to see their value in this world by instilling the ideas of self-esteem and self-respect.

Students are pushed to their physical limits and encouraged to go beyond these limits and reach new levels.

The CCHS Karate Club expects each student to strive for perfection, while accepting individual achievements and limitations.

All students of the CCHS Karate Club learn to set goals and strive to attain them, helping them to overcome life's obstacles.
