Japan Karate Association – Shotokan Karate
Regardless of whether you are interested in competition or self defence, if you want to be the best, you have to train with the best.
A balance between traditional and modern
At Bujutsu Martial Arts and Fitness Centre, we focus on realistic training that can be applied to situations that you might find yourself in when on street. Sensei Mark has been graded by Japanese Sensei to 4th Degree Black Belt in Shotokan Karate. Our classes are Shotokan based, but have an emphasis on reality based self defence.
Karate is a striking art using punching, kicking, knee and elbow strikes, and open-handed techniques such as knife-hands. Grappling locks, restraints, throws, and vital point strikes are also taught.
Increase your fitness
Another benefit of learning karate is the fitness aspect. Karate not only improves your mental ability, but it’s also a great way to increase your fitness level. Our classes contain a good balance between cardiovascular endurance and strength training. You will find yourself getting stronger, becoming more coordinated and flexible.
There are 27 Kata in the JKA Shotokan System. Video of the kata’s can be found here.
