The study of Shito-Ryu Karate at each Shito-Kai Dojo will help students obtain the confidence to face situations that are both uncertain and unknown.  During each class respect for others (i.e. students, parents & teachers) will be strongly promoted.

We will focus on helping students improve themselves while setting and achieving personal goals.  This does not mean that we will neglect other important building blocks such as teamwork and communication with others. There will be exercises that focus on the individual and there will be exercises that focus on working with others.  Every student will have a chance to work with their strengths and greatly improve upon their weaknesses!

Novice:
At this level classes are designed to teach strong fundamentals and lay a solid foundation for success both as a karate student and in life. Classes will begin with a good warm-up which includes a carefully designed stretching routine and build with the introduction of basic Shito-Ryu techniques and Kata.  Basic self-defence applications as well as an overview of health & fitness as they relate to participation in an “Action” sport will also be introduced.

Intermediate:
At this level classes are designed to take a Novice to the next level of proficiency in Shito-Ryu Karate.  The techniques learned in Novice are reinforced while advanced techniques are introduced. Intermediate self-defence applications as well as a more advanced understanding of health & fitness as they relate to participation in an “Action” sport will also be introduced.

Advanced:
At this level classes are designed to take an Intermediate Shito-Kai Karate student to the highest levels attainable in Shito-Ryu Karate. Lessons are designed to help students reach the deepest understanding of all aspects of karate and themselves. For those students deemed worthy, the opportunity to improve oneself by learning the fundamentals of teaching others will be initiated.
