About Shotokan Karate
Shotokan Karate originated in Okinawa, a small island south of Japan. It was popularized in Japan by Gichin Funakoshi in the 1950s. The name "Shotokan" comes from the name "Shoto," which was Funakoshi's pen name, meaning 'waving or billowing pine'. Shotokan Karate is a traditional martial art. This means that improvements in character and mental discipline are as important as physical skill, if not more so.
Shotokan Karate is meant to be accessible to all, including, women, children, and those with or without great athletic ability. The Shotokan Karate Academy (SKA) offers a caring, safe environment where children and adults can learn the art of karate.
Its practice leads to:
If you've never had any exposure to martial arts before, we know the first time can be a little intimidating, let alone if you don't exericse very regularly. Just stepping in the dojo is the HARDEST part.
We have a welcoming environment where we gradually teach new students the basics, giving individuals the time and guidance that they need to feel comfortable and to excel.
Stop by for free, no commitment class. No experience necessary. We welcome those who would feel more comfortable observing first and also if you have previously practiced karate or some other martial art elsewhere.
