For more information:

Shōtōkan is a fusion-style karate format developed by Gichin and Gigo Funakoshi in Japan in 1938 from several styles of martial arts. The philosophy of the art is based largely on bushido and Zen with a focus on seeking perfection of character, faithfulness, endeavoring to excel, respecting others, and refraining from violent behavior.

Form and rhythm techniques include katas and sparring which include kicks, twists, turns, punches, steps, sweeps, strikes, jumps, dropping to the ground, and blocks. Participants become healthier, stronger, and more confident and patient while benefiting from enhanced physical and mental fitness and learning valuable self-defense skills.
