Shimokawara Karate In Gillettekarate logo

This is a traditional Japanese Karate Class focusing on self-defense techniques. The values stressed during training are respect, discipline, obedience, hard work and self-esteem. A variety of stimulating drills and skits keep the training challenging and exciting to children, yet applicable to their improvements in the art of Japanese Karate and Chinese Kempo. The Martial Arts is family oriented and parents are encouraged to participate with their children.
