Attitude is everything!

Master Funakoshi always said, ‘Spirit first, Technique second

I love the health side of karate, slow flowing karate techniques, repeated over and over, slowly flowing kata repeated slowly, continually stretching the body, breathing.  Karatedo is awesome for health and well being, but there is another side to karatedo.

This is when everything speeds up, full speed and power!

At full speed and power, every technique you deliver must have intent, ikken hissatsu must be applied and if you are practicing at home, your karate can become very strong by applying this attitude.
