Traditional Shotokan Karate Training



At YAH, we study the traditional art of Shotokan karate.

We believe karate is beneficial to any and every aspect of life. Getting the most out of our training means adopting a karate mindset–one of dedication and perseverance–in all that we do: from self defense, to sports, to general life philosophy.

Our goal is to spread the benefits of karate to as many people as possible: people of all ages, all backgrounds, and all abilities. That’s why classes are available to anyone ages 5 and up.
