KENSHIN SHOTOKAN KARATE CLUB

A REGISTERED NON PROFIT ORGANIZATION –ISKF member

KENSHIN SHOTOKAN-KARATE CLUB

 

KENSHIN Karate Club of Red Deer is accepting NEW MEMBERS!!!

Our purpose is to help you develop a well-balanced mind and body through traditional Shotokan karate  training.

KENSHIN Karate club’s blends the traditional elements and concepts of Shotokan karate with practical lessons for self defense.

Our karate training will be broken down based on the concept of “three Ks”. The "three Ks" are Kihon, Kata, and Kumite and we will focus on each core training element individually. When all these three elements are combined then the three K’s are becoming one, and that is ...KARATE.

Be prepared to work hard (physically demanding!) and to strive to achieve your goals.

“The ultimate aim of karate lies not in victory or defeat but in the perfection of the character of its participants."

Gichin Funakoshi

  • Each person must strive for the perfection of one's character
  • Each person must be faithful and protect the way of truth
  • Each person must endeavour (fostering the spirit of effort)
  • Each person must respect others and the rules of etiquette
