This experience is for individuals or groups who have karate experience and want to improve their skills in Japan. Therefore we only take 2 participants at a maximum. The flow of the lesson is as follows: ①Changing into Dogi ②Bowing and Meditating Just like the saying in karate, "Karate starts and ends with a bow". Although bowing is usually misjudged as a simple gesture, it is a profound movement that is applied to all of the basic punches and kicks. We will also meditate to elevate our focus. ③Consultation Time I will listen to the problems that you are currently facing. It can be about Kata or Kumite. By understanding your goal, I will make your personal training menu for the class. It will be 100% tailormade. ④Training! ⑤Advice on your future training methods
Yusuke: I've trained under the disciple of Gichin Funakoshi, the founder of Shotokan, and known as a “father of modern karate”. I grew up with a rich heritage KARATE practice, becoming the black belt master of The Japan Karate Federation official approval. Moreover, I coach middle and high school athletes, leading them to prefecture wide competitions. Natsu: Karate is my passion. Beginning my karate career from 5 years old, I have a black belt for 2 main styles: Shotokan and Wado. I have recently won a Kumite tournament in Kanagawa!

We pride ourselves on the fact that our dojo is also a Japanese traditional TEMPLE. Therefore not only can participants experience karate but also interact with Priest Enomoto. The surrounding areas have a downtown local vibe, much calmer than the busy cities of Tokyo. If you want to see the everyday life of an average Japanese, this town would be perfect. Also located only 20min from Tokyo station, you can plan another activity on that day!
5歳以上の方2名まで参加できます。 This lesson is dedicated to someone who has karate experience :)
