Shotokan karate is a Japanese martial art with roots stemming from Okinawa.  It is the most wide spread form of karate with clubs located all around the world.  Shotokan karate is primarily an empty handed striking and kicking martial art; however, take-downs and throws are also included in the system’s repertoire.  Shotokan karate can be classified as a number of things including: an effective system of self-defense; an avenue for competition; a healthy form of exercise; a performing art; a method of physical education (great for cross training); and, a great method for controlling tension/stress. Shotokan karate is a great activity for both young and old, and an activity that can include the entire family.  Bare feet and comfortable clothing are suggested for this program.
