Karatedo Shinyokai certainly teaches the traditional art of Japanese karate, but also that karate consists of much more than punches and kicks. Hence, the use of the character Dō to convey that we teach more than just the physical activity of karate.
Shinyokai karate is strongly based on the arts of Shotokan and Goju-ryu, as well as Aikido, Iaido and Shorin-ryu. All areas of the martial arts receive equal attention at the Shinyokai:
________● stretching ● basics
________● self-defense ● kata
________● kumite (sparring) ● meditation.
Beginners are most welcome. In fact, maintaining a beginner’s mind is an important concept for advanced students. You can begin learning karate, get a good workout and start having fun right away in a very safe and welcoming environment.[/mantra-column][/mantra-multi]
