Fall 2017 schedule:Tuesdays/Thursdays 5:15-6:15pm, North Balcony, Sports Center
The art form practiced is shotokan karate, we practice twice a week
throughout the semester. Emphasis is placed on self control, mental
focus, efficient technique, physical fitness, and kata combat
applications (bunkai). We spar in all forms (tournament style, free
sparring including holding and throwing) except on the ground. Shotokan
is a Japanese/Okinawan hard style that relies primarily on striking,
however several defense tactics for close combat (throws, knees, locks
etc.) are also incorporated. It is rooted in strong stances and
utilizes about 60% hands, 40% legs. No weapons are currently used.
