Shotokan Karate

What is Shotokan Karate? This video gives you a sense of what our style of Karate is all about.

Much of the training involves working without a partner where the basic techniques (kihon) and forms (kata) of the martial art are perfected. Only a small fraction of our training involves hand-to-hand training (kumite), and then the objective is to demonstrate both speed and control without actually injuring your training partner.
