The style of Martial Art is called Shito-Ryu Karate-do. It is one of the 4 main styles to come form Okinawa Japan, and the one made famous by "the karate kid" in the 80's.

The kid's classes enhance their gymnastics skills to better defend themselves from bullies and falls
 in the playground, while the adult classes adapts
a more traditional side, encouraging self-awareness and self-confidence.
