Tatsu Te Ryu Karate-Do is Christian based and uses the martial arts as a vehicle to reach out to people and lead them to Christ. We start and end classes with prayer, and incorporate religious katas that can be run along with the a bible passage. We have another kata that movements correspond with the Lord's Prayer. Our kyu rank colors have Christian significance, and scriptures that go along with them.

 

Tatsu Te Ryu Karate-Jutsu is a secular variation of the "Do". It does not share the same philosophical attributes, but does utilize the same technical requirements. The kyu levels are similar to that of Shotokan.

 

Tatsu Te Ryu Shubi Senjutsu is a combative alternative to both the "Do" and "Jutsu". Tatsu Te Ryu Shubi Senjutsu focuses on real world applications and the use of kata are minimized in favor of effective but yet brutal Self-Defense.
