The CKA Karate Program incorporates Character Qualities to help students develop spiritual growth and strength of character.  Karate trains the mind and body to develop strength and endurance physically.  The addition of the character qualities trains the mind and spirit to develop strength and endurance spiritually.


The memorization of character qualities is required for rank testing.  In addition to rank required character qualities, the association has a “Character Quality of the Month.” The Character Quality of the Month is the same throughout the association.  Character qualities are taught and recited during class. Students will be learning at least 2 character qualities at any one time.  


There are 24 character qualities that have been selected and developed for use with our curriculum.  Each character quality is associated with a kata.  The Character Quality of the Month is on a 2 year rotation.
