Shotokan Karate is a long and rich tradition filled with history, culture, and knowledge. Within this class, students will be brought through a basic training seminar, learning the fundamentals of Shotokan Karate (Kihon) through move-by-move training as well as learning their very own training Kata, Taikyoku Shodan. Students will learn all of the material required to take and pass the very first belt exam from White Belt to Red Belt in a fun, engaging manner, all the while training their bodies and minds in the long and meaningful tradition of Shotokan Karate.


There will be no physical person-to-person contact through fighting or sparring of any kind. The safety of students is the number one priority and there is plenty of material to work on that does not include Kumite (sparring).

Min/Max Students 4-20

Age Range: 8+

Price: $31.50 - includes uniform

He has been studying under the tutelage of Illinois Shotokan Karate Club's Sensei Bajic, Sensei Patel, and Sensei La-tona, who are all in their own right masters of the craft.
