SK logoKarate-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.
