Karate Program - YMCA of Boulder

Shotokan Karate-do, a classical form of Japanese karate, is taught through the YMCA of Boulder (Colorado) by Boulder Shotokan Karate. Shotokan karate emphasizes a balanced, practical, self-defense oriented approach to the practice of basics, kata (forms), and sparring during training.

Benefits: Karate students benefit physically and mentally. Training enhances the individual's personal safety, physical condition and coordination, confidence, discipline, and concentration.

The chief regional instructor is Mr. Yutaka Yaguchi, 9th degree black belt, with nearly 50 years of experience in karate. Mr. Bruce Green, 8th degree black belt and former international and national competitor, is chief instructor in Boulder.

What to Expect: Training in a new skill, particularly a martial art, can be a great growth experience. There's more to learn than you might anticipate; mental as well as physical. The dojo (training place) offers a uniquely safe environment for you to learn in - to grasp new ideas, new movements, and even new feelings. Training in karate — for young or old — is a remarkable, thrilling, and multi-faceted experience. Come watch a class.
