"Through serious martial arts practice, we can learn to face ourselves strictly and show our best spirit in all situations."
About the Twin Falls Shotokan Karate DojoOur dojo was founded in 2011 by Jesse Clark, Sandan (3rd degree black belt) who received permission to lead the dojo directly from Tsutomu Ohshima, founder of Shotokan Karate of America. Our members enjoy a direct link to ancient masters of martial arts through Mr. Ohshima and his direct instructor, Gichin Funakoshi, founder of Shotokan Karate. We strive to strengthen body, mind and spirit, perfect character, and faithfully transmit the art to future generations.
Benefits of Karate PracticeKarate can be practiced by everyone at any age for self-defense, to strengthen the entire body, improve balance, efficiency of movement, breathing and overall health. No special equipment is needed. Karate helps to strengthen the mind, develop courage, fortitude, and the ability to achieve goals. Karate practice emphasizes spiritual values of courtesy, integrity, humility, justice, honor, and self-control. The study of karate benefits the student in all areas of their life.

"In order to achieve victory you must place yourself in your opponent’s skin. If you don’t understand yourself, you will lose one hundred percent of the time. If you understand yourself, you will win fifty percent of the time. If you understand yourself and your opponent, you will win one hundred percent of the time." - Tsutomu Ohshima
