At Otonga we teach traditional shotokan karate in a family friendly environment. It is a fun way for both boys and girls to achieve fitness and focus.

Karate help teach self-discipline and socialization skills. A typical hour-long class begins with a warm-up, students then practice particular skills which includes kicks, punches and blocks. Each requires concentration and strict attention.

Testing for each new level is a good exercise in setting and achieving goals.

Probably the most important benefit is the respect that the students learn. For kids it often carries over into school, helping to improve behaviour and even grades.
