THE HISTORY OF SHOTOKAN KARATE
Shotokan Karate is part of an ancient history of self-defense. A traditional Japanese martial art developed by Master Gichin Funakoshi, Shotokan Karate remains the most widely practiced form of Karate, boasting a powerful system of fighting crafted through centuries of refinement.
Shotokan Karate emphasizes blocking and striking techniques, turning the arms and legs into powerful weapons. As a traditional martial art, Shotokan Karate practitioners train as the masters did before them. Technique, control, and discipline transform students into exceptional martial arts practitioners.
Though Shotokan Karate teaches impressive fighting technique, the purpose of training is for self defense, wellness of body, and personal strength. In Master Funakoshi's own words, "The ultimate aim of the art of Karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in the perfection of the character of the participant."
THE HISTORY OF PERRO SHOTOKAN KARATE
Perro Shotokan Karate continues the ancient tradition of martial arts excellence with quality training and knowledgeable instructors. Classes are broken into three points of study: Kihon (basic techniques), Kata (Memorized movement sequences), and Kumite (sparring) which combine to deliver a well-rounded, and intense class. Perro Shotokan Karate embraces the formal method of training established by celebrated masters, offering the highest level of study.
In addition to traditional training, Perro Shotokan Karate recognizes the "art" in martial art, and has developed specialized training courses for performers in television and film looking to expand their resume with expertise in stunt fighting. These film-specific courses begin with a practical foundation, but are designed for the performer looking for scene-specific techniques for television and film.
