teaEmpty Cup Karate teaches traditional Okinawan Goju-Ryu and self defense in NYC. We offer traditional karate training that integrates modern research and insights. We are offering free self defense workshops for communities impacted by violence, and those that are legitimately afraid following the results of the 2016 election. More information can be found on our Self Defense page. 

Empty Cup Karate actively welcomes students from all genders, orientations, ages, financial statuses, backgrounds, and physical fitness levels.
