Who We are
We are a branch of the International Chayon Ryu Association founded by Grandmaster Kim Soo, Houston 1968. We combine a variety of traditional martial art styles in our teachings. For more information, visit www.kimsookarate.com.
Chayon Ryu means "Natural Way Martial Arts." We use natural body movements. This leads to longevity in the sport. We are unique in that we have Masters who have been training for 20-40 years who can still train without injury. More importantly, we teach students to be self-less leaders. This is truly a lifestyle martial art.
Our lead instructor is Sarah Geenberg. She started training in Chayon Ryu in 1988 in a branch in Austin and is a second degree black belt. For more information about her and the other teachers, go to the instructor bios.
