SHOTOKAN KARATE – IT’S GREAT FOR EVERYONE

Shotokan Karate fosters to polish the virtues of courage, courtesy, integrity, humility and self-control to make them the inner light to guide one’s daily actions.  Anyone can do it – young and old, men and women alike.  The fact that karate may be easily practiced either alone or in groups, at any time or place, is a feature unique to it.  Flexibility in training is provided such that, one who is physically and spiritually weak can develop one’s body and mind so gradually and naturally, that he or she may not even realize his or her own great progress. 

The Las Vegas School of Shotokan Karate’s training program combines the mental and physical disciplines necessary to improve one's strength, flexibility, speed and mental alertness.  Each class begins and ends with brief meditation.  Our program emphasizes the development and personal growth of all its students.
