Something For Everyone


Karate Style
Our karate style is called Shotokan. Shotokan was founded by the father of modern day karate, Master Gichin Funakoshi. Shoto was Master Funakoshi's pen name. When translated Shoto means pine waves which describes the sound of the wind rustling through pine trees on Mount Torao. Kan means building , school or house. So, Shotokan means Shoto's house or school of karate.

Shotokan karate is based on 3 pillars Kata (form), Kihon (basics) and Kumite (sparring). Learning these systems will allow you to be better prepared for defensive and counter attacking movements. Ultimately Karate-do is more than just training, it allows you to go beyond the physical movements and to use karate for life.
