Karate-do is a system of unarmed combat using the hands and feet to deliver and block blows, widely practiced as a sport. We teach the Shotokan Karate Style; developed from various Japanese Karate styles by Gichin Funakoshi (1868–1957) and his son Yoshitaka Funakoshi (1906–1945). Karate-do is performed barefoot in loose padded clothing, with a colored belt indicating the level of skill, and involves mental as well as physical training.
Silverado Karate offers a wide variety of techniques which is the result of blending styles of martial arts, from the hardest to the softest.
This program offers the opportunity to reach a harmonic equilibrium between body and mind. In fact we find, in Karate, all the essential psychomotor elements. Karate skills, exercise, and physical fundamentals are a great way for anyone to gain coordination, balance and strength.

Oscar Silvera - Head Instructor
Why should you choose a USA Karate affiliated school over any other?
Karate is now an official Olympic sport, and it will start at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Our school is afiliated to the USA National Karate-do Federation, which is the national governing body of Karate for the United States Olympic Committee and as such is the official Member National Association of the World Karate Federation in the USA. This means not only are the clubs teaching Olympic style Karate-do with coaches educated and background checked for safety by the official governing body, it also means if your child turns out to be good enough it could be the first step towards a medal podium one day!
