Training classes are rigorous with emphasis on understanding the principals of JKA Traditional Shotokan Karate. The classes are not geared towards “sport” karate, though we have had some students who have competed very successfully.
Kid’s Classes: There are no separate kids or beginning classes. Beginners are incorporated into the regular class and separated out for specialized instruction.
Recommended minimum age for training is 12 – though this is based on the maturity and character of the student, not strickly on age, so some variance is possible on a trial basis, especially if the student has had prior martial arts training.
