Developing Mind with Body
Child development experts now recognize the correlation between movement and cognitive learning – especially complex, functional movement as in karate which emphasizes balance and coordination. Karate challenges the mind and body to gain skills analogous to perfecting a golf swing or techniques of dance. Shotokan karate complements physical conditioning with development of self-confidence, self-esteem, concentration, discipline and cooperation.
Balance and Harmony
Karate seeks to harmonize intention, breath and movement. One learns to achieve maximum power with minimum effort by focusing mental and physical energies in one direction.
Our program improves strength, flexibility, ability and increases stamina. The discipline teaches proper techniques for movement, strengthens back and abdomen muscles, stabilizes the spine and joints, improves posture and helps prevent back pain. A key is to ensure body joints are free and those movements are light and efficient. The result is a body that performs better in most any activity – not just karate.
Good for All Ages
Each student applies the principles of karate to their body. Each student learns to listen to his/her body and adapt karate knowledge in a personal way. Every karateka (practitioner of karate) reflects karate according to individual body characteristics.
Longevity and Quality of Life

In addition to regular exercise, karate stimulates both the mind and body. Research has also found that certain activities that stimulate the mind, like music and martial arts, also stimulate the growth of new brain cells even at an advanced age. t is a fact that most of the famous karate masters trained into their eighties and nineties – physical and mental vitality.
Karate is based on technique rather than strength or size. Even a small person can learn to create great power; this is done with techniques reflecting a deep understanding of the body. Furthermore, timing and sharp reaction can be acquired with systematic training methods and are more important than innate athletic ability. In karate we do not simply counter the aggressor’s strength; we capitalize on it through strategy and technique.
However, Shotokan karate is not about fighting. The highest objective of Shotokan karate is to avoid physical confrontation. Students are taught to practice humility but with the confidence that comes from knowing they have the tools to defend themselves if necessary.Karate classes in chandigarh
