This site is based on my daily practice of traditional Shotokan Karate-Do. I'm a Japan and international instructor based in Oita City. My dojo constantly has high-level trainees from all over Japan and, occassionally karateka from abroad, seeking true budo. More than anything else, unlike the majority of other karate-do websites, this page is primarily dedicated to training itself; that is, Karate-Do as a vehicle for holistic development.

Kyouga nokorino jinnsei saisyo no hi
今日が残りの人生最初の日or “kyouga nokorino jinnsei saisyo no hi” literallymeans “Today is the first day of the rest of my life”. This is an important saying in Karate-Do. Physically this is reflected by one having a beginners mind in their training; moreover, using each day to maximise their efforts. Osu, André.
