Your child will learn Shotokan Karate Do, which is Japanese base karate. Shotokan is regarded as a dynamic martial art as it develops anaerobic, powerful techniques as well as developing speed. Initially, strength and power are demonstrated instead of slower, more flowing motions. Our classes are structured, disciplined and interactive, fun, but non-competitive. Self-awareness, self-respect, safety and respect for others are emphasized at all times, as well as the importance of setting goals.

How Does the Belt System
at Sandoval Freestyle Karate Work?
There are many different types of martial arts, and each has a ranking system. Most rankings go from beginner to experienced master. Rankings vary widely between the many arts. Belts and belt colors vary even more than rankings do. Belt colors will almost always be different from one karate school to another, and the same is true in different types of martial arts, and even some instructors will vary on the way they use their belts. Some martial arts don’t even have belts, while others have only white and black belts. More commonly, however, karate schools carry a rainbow of colors to signify the advancement of their students from one level to the next. Instructors are also different in their behaviors.
