In additon to breaking, there are many other martial arts taught at the Arizona School of Traditional Karate that you will not see in most martial arts schools. One is shitai kori - body hardening. This is a difficult martial art to learn, but takes only time and effort and proper instruction. We don't recommend it for everyone - only those who are interested in testing themselves.
