Throughout the course, you’ll cover areas such as technique, pad work, blocking and counter attacking. In particular, the technique in Shokotan Karate is characterised by deep, long stances that will improve your stability, strengthen your legs and enable powerful movements.

Shokotan Karate has lots of other benefits too; it helps to develop patience, courage, self-confidence and self-control (among many more) and will have a positive effect on both your body and mind.
