Karate
First and foremost, karate is not sport - ​ Karate  is Budo . It is to be taken and practiced seriously. Karate is not just in the Dojo - it is in life. While it can be practised by all - it is not for everyone. Dedication and a continuous challenge can be expected of the karate-ka. The Parkland Shotokan Karate Association was formed in December 2015 and is registered as a Society in the Province of Alberta. It operates as a non-profit organization governed by a volunteer  executive board. Shotokan karate is a traditional style of martial art, which originated in Okinawa and was introduced to Japan by Sensei Funakoshi Gichin . He is considered the father of modern karate due to his influence in introducing karate to mainland Japan and promoting it as Budo. After his passing in 1957, the Japanese Karate Association instructors spread Shotokan to many parts of the world under the guidance of Masatoshi Nakayama . Shotokan Karate is one of the most common martial arts practiced today. Shotokan Karate is characterized by long low stances and powerful actions. Shotokan Karate uses a variety of hand and foot techniques to defend and attack an opponent. Blocking and striking are the most common techniques of Shotokan Karate although several take downs, sweeps, holds and some joint locks are also used.
