Our Practice is done in a traditional manner. We follow the traditions of Master Funakoshi as he brought them from Okinawa to Japan. The aim of practice is to face ourselves. In doing so we will become better people, who bring a positive influence in our school, work, families and friends. As iron sharpens iron so we each help one another in this journey of life. Remember that Karate practice is a lifestyle for a lifetime.
Beginners practice- This practice is tailored to anyone who is age 10 years old or older. For someone who has an interest in Karate but has never really trained before. You will learn the fundamentals of blocking, kicking and punching. The proper etiquette of the class. The history and traditions that make Shotokan karate what it is today. You will develop your balance, coordination, stamina and strength over time, your confidence and skills will grow.
