Our Philosophy

The concept of Blue Life Karate and Kickboxing Centers was established in 1991 by Shihan Durand Howard and has grown to become the most preferred Martial Arts center in the area.

Our mission is to help our students lead a more successful life through the practice of the Blue Life Budo Ninjutsu system. We do this by teaching martial arts as a complete discipline (mind, body, spirit). In addition to developing physical defense, our system encourages the formation of higher personal standards and respect for fellow men and women. Through our practice and teaching, we strive to produce individuals who are positive, respected and productive members of society.

We have three main goals for our students:


Blue Life Karate and Kickboxing Centers has a system of natural, easy to learn movements, which are designed to allow individuals young and old, male or female, to defend themselves against aggressive, often larger opponents.


In order to eliminate wasted motion and promote increased speed and power, students are taught to become more relaxed and fluid. The aerobic effect of training improves the cardiovascular system (hearts and lungs) and accelerates the body’s metabolism, causing you to burn more calories and to lose weight. Regular training also results in increased balance, flexibility, strength, muscle tone, speed, coordination, and improved reflexes and timing! Better health means you will not only look better and feel better, but you will also have a lot more energy to do the things you enjoy.


In this aspect, our curriculum surpasses all other exercise and sports activities. Our program is taught according to  individual needs and levels of skills. Through our instructor’s guidance and encouragement, students begin to establish, and achieve personal goals. Students learn that, by setting realistic goals and applying dedication and hard work, anything is possible. This develops confidence! The virtues of Respect, Concentration, Discipline, and Motivation are the characteristics of a truly confident individual. These virtues are consistently reinforced by our Staff. for wanting to take interest.

Blue Life Karate and Kickboxing Centers stays focused on providing our students with the highest quality of instruction, professionalism, and the best customer service in the industry.

To achieve our goal we have implemented programs that cater to the individual interests of our community. Our Students range from all ages with interests varying from stress relief and embracing a healthier lifestyle through exercise, to intense traditional training that the Martial Arts are so famous for.

All aspects of our center are arranged to build a balanced relationship of trust and respect with our students.
