Character

“The very essence of karate, the main purpose of training – is all about improving ourselves. We must always work hard at this. When we take responsibility to become persons of good character and integrity, we will be doing our part to make the world a better place, which in turn can help to bring peace to the world.” 

Grand Master Teruyuki Okazaki

“For a Karateka who goes through the ups and downs of training, it will help him to control himself in whatever else he does, and through patience he will be able to build up his personality and create a harmonious character.”
– Hirokazu Kanazawa

Testimonials

“I like to train in Shotokan Karate because it translates to all areas of my life. Karate not only helps with my physical strength and flexibility, it also helps with mental focus, personal discipline and self confidence. Karate is more than just a sport or hobby. It is a way of life.”

“I always dreamed about becoming a black belt in karate. I achieved that dream, and so can you. There are no secrets, just hard work and dedication.  You might just have a lot of fun and meet some really cool people too. So what are you waiting for? Give karate a try. It is not for everybody, but if you don’t check it out, you will never know.  The hardest part is just getting there. So make that commitment and do something for yourself and stop dreaming the dream. Live it!”

– Tony
