Karatedo Doshinkan is a unique martial art that traces its origins back to the Okinawan schools of karatedo. In Karatedo Doshinkan, we emphasize a balance between physical techniques, physical fitness, and eastern philosophy. We do not compete with each other in our classes or in competitions; instead we focus on individual effort and on working together to understand our movements. To accomplish this, our classes focus primarily on learning and repeating hard and soft techniques (hard techniques as seen in many karate movies and soft techniques as seen in Tai Chi), kata (a series of techniques in a specific order), and controlled partner training where we can learn to carefully apply our techniques. We also consider different aspects of eastern philosophy and how those can be applied in our trainings and our lives.

Unfortunately, there is no space on campus available for our classes. Current members train together at an off-campus location.
