Offered from Shotokan Karate of America
David Schmitt (instructor)
Study traditional Shotokan karate with Shotokan Karate of America. A great workout for physical conditioning and flexibility, together with martial arts training. Broader benefits of practicing karate include discipline, humility, courtesy, and patience. Men and women of all ages are welcome.
Currently no practice times are available, see other SKA sites for information.
Feel free to try it out. In honor of the traditional teaching methods, everyone starts and finishes practice together, so we must ask that visitors or prospective students not come in the middle of class.
Shotokan Karate of America (“SKA”) is a non-profit organization that has been teaching karate in the U.S. since 1955. It was founded and is still led by Tsutomu Ohshima, a direct student of Gichin Funakoshi, the “father” of modern karate. (“Shotokan” means the house or clan of Shoto – Funakoshi’s pen name.) More information is available at SKA’s website: www.ska.org.
