Karate

St. Theresa Karate Club is affiliated with Fairfax Shotokan Karate Club.  We train in Shotokan karate on Wednesdays from 4:30 - 5:30 and Fridays after school until 4:30.  

Shotokan training is usually divided into three parts: kihon (basics), kata (forms or patterns of moves), and kumite(sparring). Techniques in kihon and kata are characterised by deep, long stances that provide stability, enable powerful movements, and strengthen the legs. Shotokan is regarded as a dynamic martial art as it develops anaerobic, powerful techniques as well as developing speed.
