ABOUT OUR KARATE SCHOOL
Meikyo offers a safe and professionally operated Shotokan karate dojo. Shotokan is a traditional Japanese martial arts style of karate. Sensei Smith provides highly individualized instruction, guiding each student towards their personal goals and encouraging them to develop to their own capacity.
Because everyone trains at their own pace, new students can join the dojo at any time (by appointment). Beginners train alongside our intermediate and advanced students. Every karate-ka is expected to hone the fundamentals of our art before attempting more advanced techniques.
At Meikyo, our focus is on self-development. We encourage students to compete against themselves, rather than others, and to support fellow karate-ka in their development.
Karate-do is a lifelong journey. Meikyo Shotokan Karate-Do is inclusive. We believe that the earnest practice of karate-do can benefit everyone, and we welcome youth and adults who represent diversity in its many dimensions. Why not start your journey today with a friend or loved one? You never know what you can do until you try!
