Shotokan Karate at the CU Rec Center

Shotokan Karate is a traditional Japanese Martial Art that was introduced to Japan from Okinawa by Gichin Funakoshi Sensei. Shotokan Karate is one of the most widely practiced forms of martial arts in the world today.

Shotokan training is focused on Kihon (basic techniques), Kata (forms) and Kumite (sparring). Men and women of all ages can start Karate and all they need is an interest in self defense, a commitment to train regularly, and a willingness to improve their physical and mental health.
