Many people will look at the name of our Dojo and wonder how to pronounce it and what it means. So, here is a small Japanese language primer for you. Yuuki is pronounced YouKey and it means Courage in Japanese. Do is pronounced Doe and it means Way in Japanese. So, Yuuki Do Karate means Way of Courage Karate.
At Yuuki Do Karate, we teach Traditional Shotokan Karate as developed by Gishin Funakoshi and Masatoshi Nakayama. This style of Karate is characterized by dynamic movements and strong stances that produce powerful techniques and develop the body.
Karate provides many benefits including: Memory Retention, Confidence, Self-Control, Problem Solving, Adaptation, Patience, Respect, Integrity, Humility, Perseverance, Balance, Coordination, Flexibility, Reflex Enhancement and Endurance. It is an activity in which the entire family can participate for their entire life. Unlike sports such as basketball, baseball and football, karate is a martial art and can be enjoyed year round.
