Simba Dojo offers training in traditional Shotokan Karate and meditation to promote a more rounded healthy life style. Shotokan Karate is perhaps the most popular form of karate in the world. Originally, karate was developed in Okinawa and popularized by Gichin Funakoshi who is known as the Father of Karate. Karate is a great way to promote exercise and mental wellbeing.
Shotokan is a system of karate, developed from various martial arts by Gichin Funakoshi (1868–1957) and his son Gigo (Yoshitaka) Funakoshi (1906–1945). Gichin was born in Okinawa and is widely credited with popularizing "karate do" through a series of public demonstrations, and by promoting the development of university karate clubs, including those at Keio, Waseda, Hitotsubashi (Shodai), Takushoku, Chuo, Gakushuin, and Hosei.
