Intro to Shotokan Karate
Join us for a workshop introducing students to the basics of the traditional Japanese martial art of Shotokan Karate.
Shotokan Karate is a BUDO (traditional Japanese martial art) focusing on empty-hand self-defense. Its purpose is not to win against an enemy outside of your body but to win against yourself. That means to win against your fears, doubts, indecisiveness and to be surprised by nothing.
”The ultimate aim of Karate lies not in victory or in defeat, but in the perfection of the character of its participants.” – Gichin Funakoshi, Founder of Shotokan Karate (1868 – 1957) Presented by the Japan Karate Association of Chicago.
