Learn to master your body through fundamental lessons taught by Shihan Kai Leung. Shihan is known as the master-disciple of this discipline through his years of study and dedication to Shotokan.


Are you looking for advanced martial arts? Shotokan Karate teaches principles in all aspects of life as it is a style characterized by self-discipline and mindfulness. Karate works to improve the person participating through respect, faithfulness, compassion, patience, and a sense of calmness. 

Shotokan Karate originated with Gichin Funakoshi in 1936. His son, Yoshitaka, assisted in the creation of this style through collaboration with karate masters to develop a technique that differs from the original form of karate. 

This type of martial arts is ideal for people who want to expand outside of regular karate into advanced practice. The Bronx Martial Arts Academy supports a family-focused arena for children as young as 4 years old. 

Participants will learn these principles in the Shotokan class:

  • Karate is outside the dojo as well

  • Training is lifelong

  • Understand yourself first 

  • Respect is the beginning and the end

The end goal of this style of martial arts is to create a well-rounded person.

• Increase both the cardiovascular and respiratory systems
