Shotokan Karate

Serving Colorado Springs

Dojo Kun:

Seek Perfection of Character...
Be Faithful...
Respect Others...
Refrain from Violent Deeds.

Japanese translation (click here to hear):


The International Shotokan Karate Federation of Colorado Springs is an organization dedicated to personal growth through the traditional art of Karate. We help our students develop character and grow both physically and mentally. We believe everyone has the right to defend themselves and no one has the right to cause harm to others. Training karate is more than learning self defense. Karate is training for a lifetime - it improves health, self confidence and personal growth. When teaching we focus on responsibility, safety, fun and learning. Everyone can benefit by adding karate training to their life.
