Leeds Shotokan Karate
“There is no first attack in Karate” Gichin Funakoshi.
There is more to Karate than physical techniques, at its foundation is a tradition of spiritual and physical development and as Master Funakoshi, the founder of Shotokan Karate said “the ultimate aim of karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in the perfection of the character of its participation”. Karate training builds self discipline, suppleness, co-ordination, speed of reaction, overall fitness, stamina and a sense of inner calm. It is also highly enjoyable!
