WHY “TRADITIONAL” KARATE?

With so many great martial arts schools in the area, why choose Traditional Japanese karate at South KC Shotokan Karate? The answer is simple: because it fits you. That’s what’s most important, finding an art, a place, a group that fits you.

Our focus is the strict inner-discipline of Budo (Martial Way / War Way / Japanese Martial Arts) and the challenging training that facilitates the fortification of the mind, the building of the body, and strengthening of the character of kids, youth, and adults. Students are challenged to take an honest look inside and see who they really are, and who they can truly become.

At the same time, we balance this with the Bujutsu (Martial or Technique / Martial Skill / Martial Tactics) side the of art, the ability to apply martial skills to real-life self-protection and self-defense situations. We strive to build not just the swift, powerful, and decisive physical techniques for self-defense, but also the mentality, tactics and strategies for recognizing and avoiding dangerous situations before they occur, and the ability to deal with them when all else fails. Such skills are invaluable in today’s ever-shifting society.

Our training is considered “old school”, and it is as it should be: evolutionary. The principles of a true martial art do not change, but the tactics, strategies, and training methods adapt as the times change. Further to that point, we, the students of the art, “evolve” as we develop deeper skills and understanding.

Finally, you are welcome just as you are. You do not have to be young, strong, or flexible, in shape, or aggressive, or a fighter, or a tournament competitor, etc, etc to join us. All that is required is a readiness to learn and a desire to be better tomorrow than you are today. This makes the art suitable for just about anyone because it can help bring out the best in each student no matter their current strengths or weaknesses.

In summary, if you are looking for a place to:

  • Reinforce the mind, the body, and the character

  • Discover how to move efficiently and effectively with speed, power, and grace, no matter your age

  • Enhance your self-awareness, self-discipline, and self-control

  • Learn and ingrain “old school” martial skills for real-life self-protection and self-defense

  • Be a part of a fantastic community of normal, everyday humans seeking to improve their lives and the lives of others

  • Evolve into the best vision / version of you…
