Refrain from violent behavior.
Shotokan is all about improving ourselves. The training is about building strength and character in every aspect of life. Training is not always easy; we need to work hard and be dedicated to karate, even when it is demanding and difficult. We learn to also apply this philosophy to life, as it too is not always easy.
We practice the traditional Japanese martial art, Shotokan Karate. Even though we emphasize full power/speed, we put importance on restraint; we won't throw people into free sparring, instead we constantly grow working on perfecting our technique. We're always improving on basics (kihon), practicing kata (a predetermined set of attacks on imaginary opponents), and occasionally kamite (defense against a real predetermined attack). There is no cost to join this club; it's absolutely free. If Shotokan Karate is something you want to commit to, you might want to buy a gi (uniform), which we will gladly help you with.
