Castillo's Shotokan Karate-Do emphasizes the character building of the students in training; Mind, Body and the Spirit. The training is physical, yet with Etiquette and Spirit (giving 100% effort) as the main foundations. Castillo's does not overlook the fighting nature of the art as a self-defense, we do not look at the winning of awards as the goal of training. Making a well rounded Warrior is the objective, one with honor and bravery for the right way to do things.
Classes are held Monday and Wednesday evenings and are ongoing. Click here to register for the classes!
