We train in Karate, we practice Karate-Do


Bushi-Katagi Dojo is a Traditional Martial Arts Center specializing in Japanese Shotokan Karate and Okinawan Kobudo. Our focus is on encouraging our students to develop confidence, self-control and respect for others. To enhance their mental and emotional faculties, respect and value life, and to develop the courage to overcome the challenges we face in life every day. The physical aspect of martial arts composed of self-defense training is the device used to develop these traits. We instill in our students the knowledge and responsibility that Karate as a physical entity is only to be used in extreme cases and only if an attack is imminent and cannot be avoided or evaded; but Karate-Do, the character development aspect is to be practiced at all times.
