The Bushi-Katagi Dojo crest is derived from all of the basic elements that make up
our style of martial art. Nothing exist in a void, everything comes from something
before, and so it is with Shotokan Karate.
The Tomoe … a representation of mind, body and spirit, is an emblem from the place
where all modern Karate originated from … Okinawa.
The Red Circle … represents the birthplace where Shotokan Karate was conceived and
from which it spread throughout the world … Japan
The Gray Circle … represents the knowledge and beliefs handed down and taught to
us by all of those who came before us the … Old Meijins.

not be able to do. Age is not a restriction, we welcome everyone from age 7 on 107.
The One Week Free offer is without any obligations. Simply contact The Dojo and let
us know when you would like to begin training. Once your free week of training is
up, you can register (no fee required) or if you find our Dojo does not fit your
