ABOUT OUR KARATE SCHOOL
Meikyo offers a safe and professionally operated Shotokan karate dojo. Shotokan is a traditional Japanese style of karate. Sensei Smith provides highly individualized instruction, guiding students toward their personal goals and encouraging them to develop to their capacity.
Because everyone trains at their own pace, new students can join the dojo anytime. 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. The earnest practice of karate-do can benefit everyone, and we welcome those who represent diversity in its many dimensions. Why not start your journey today with a friend or loved one? You only know what you can do once you try!
