The Vernon Shotokan Karate club has been in Vernon since 1993 and officially became a member of the International Shotokan Karate Federation (ISKF) in January 1995. We are not a business but rather a traditional, non-commercial martial arts school.
Our Club members are individuals who come from all walks of life. You will be training along side high school and college students, professionals, health industry workers, business owners, technicians and many others.
Our junior members range between the ages of 7 and 12 years. They are an eager group who train hard together and have fun at the same time.
Your training will begin with kihon (basics) which involves the techniques of punching, kicking, blocking and striking. You will also learn kata (formal exercises), a sequence of complex karate techniques designed as effective defenses against multiple attackers.
