"Alex’s teaching style is very mature. By that I mean his style does not involve shaming or unreasonable expectations but rather calm and persistent coaching in the pursuit of improving Kihon and Kata."
In Japanese ‘karate’ means ‘empty hand’ in reference to the empty-handed nature of karate, but also that the student’s heart empty is of negative emotions. ‘Shotokan’ means ‘house of Shoto’ in Japanese. ‘Shoto’ was the pen-name of the founder of modern karate, Gichin Funikoshi, who introduced the art to Japan in the 1930’s.
