• Karate means "empty hand", and Karate-Do translates to "the way of Karate or way of life”.Shotokan Karate is a weaponless martial art that is founded on the basic techniques of punching, kicking and blocking,yet there is a deeper aspect to serious Karate training which deals with character development.

      Shotokan Karate is a way for an individual to realize greater potential and expand the limits of that individual's physical and mental capabilities. It’s an excellent, time-proven method of personal development and remains firmly rooted in a strong martial arts tradition, emphasizing lifetime training for a healthy mind and body, rather than strictly as a sport.
