Milford J.K.A. Shotokan Karate is a martial arts school. SK engages primarily in training and coaching students in martial arts and philosophy. We offer a unique learning approach that is not limited to the physical aspect of the martial arts. Emphasis is on teaching students the holistic teachings of the East that encompass the development of Body, Mind and Spirit. Beginners 1 Classes: Learn the elementary building blocks of karate: stance, posture, coordinated body movement, and concentration upon the opponent. Karate involves training the entire body with balance, focus and proper breathing. It's roots lie in the same Japanese traditions as kendo, the art of sword fighting, or ikebana, the art of flower arranging. Karate employs a devastating combination of punches, kicks and elbow or knee strikes. It generates dynamic power by contracting and expanding the body, adding torque by rotating the hips. Its' focus unleashes maximum force against areas like the solar plexus where an opponent is most vunerable. Karate strengthens the leg muscles, and works on the cardiovascular system as thoroughly as any aerobics class.
