Shotokan Karate-do is founded on a tradition which seeks to fulfill three primary objectives apart from self-defense. First is the promotion of good health and vitality. This is achieved by improving one’s aerobic fitness, coordination, strength, flexibility, and reflexes. Second, develop an appreciation for the Budo (Martial Art) culture, etiquette and philosophy. Third, the training in karate is used as a vehicle to inspire personal excellence and strives to cultivate one’s character by valuing such traits as courtesy, respect and humility. The student who perseveres will develop courage, self-control, and self-discipline. If these three objectives are kept in view Karate-Do becomes a healthy learning process and an excellent means of prolonging ones life by keeping physically fit. P/NC only.
