Training in Shotokan Karate, a traditional martial art, will help our young members develop the following qualities:

  • Self-confidence
  • Self-esteem
  • Humility
  • Leadership
  • Teamwork
  • Awareness
  • Good Health
  • Maturity
  • Character
  • Art Appreciation
  • Empathy
  • Intuition
  • Self-control
  • Respect
  • Fighting Skills
  • Coordination
  • Courage
  • Courtesy
  • Integrity
  • Perseverance
  • Goal Setting
  • Energy
  • Flexibility
  • Grace & Poise

These "success" attributes come about as a natural byproduct of diligent karate practice. Our young members not only acquire advanced fighting skills, but also develop mental, emotional, and psychological stability. Lessons learned in the dojo extend into each member's everyday life.

The young members of Valley Shotokan are encouraged to study hard, get good grades in school, listen to their parents, keep the dojo clean, say "no" to drugs, and stay away from gangs.

They train hard!

The children that practice on a regular basis will, in time, be able to apply the principles of success being taught at the dojo to their daily lives.
The end result is that the young people who devote themselves to karate practice will have a better chance of living happy and productive lives.

Hopefully, our young members will go on to share and demonstrate the rules of successful living with the next generation.

We look forward to many young people enjoying the benefits of training in Shotokan Karate and becoming long time members of Valley Shotokan.
