Welcome to Shotokan Karate of West GA
We are a Traditional Karate School. Karate is a martial art and way of life that trains a practitioner to be peaceful; but if conflict is unavoidable, true karate dictates taking down an opponent with a single blow. Such an action requires strength, speed, focus, and control. But these physical aspects are only part of the practice; they are just the vehicle, not the journey itself. Although our training is focused on the traditional aspect of the art, we do participate in the sporting side by attending competitions on a regular basis. This allows our students to meet others with the same passion and gives them the forum to demonstrate what they have learned.
Here at Shotokan Karate of West GA, not only will you be studying a Martial Art and working on physical fitness, but our instructors will help you develop self-confidence and self-discipline, help you focus your mind, improve your self-esteem and have a more positive attitude. Our programs are geared for all ages and skill levels. It is our mission to help you become the best you can within the art itself and to develop the character needed in everyday life.
