How we study karate...

Shido-kan Karate of Mahwah teaches self-defense through the practice of:

Kata - individually performed sequences that combine a  variety of kicking, punching and blocking techniques

Kumite - two-person exercises for practicing basic    punching, kicking and blocking movement techniques as well as prearranged, controlled sparring drills that include a variety of throwing techniques

Bunkai - applications of the kata forms practiced in a group of  four to five people

Progressively more complex kata, kumite and bunkai are taught as the student advances through the belt levels.  Each training session includes warm-ups, stretching and conditioning.
