The Temple Shotokan Karate Club is devoted to developing skills in the martial art of Shotokan Karate. We emphasize the building of strength, technical skills, and, above all, character.
Training in karate teaches us not only self-defense, but also to respect others as well as ourselves. We train our bodies to be strong, and our minds and spirits to be patient.
The club continues to grow each semester, and welcomes students of all skill levels to join.
As a member of the Temple University Shotokan Karate Club, not only will you be able to attend the practices held at the IBC, but you will also be eligible for membership at the Philadelphia Shotokan Karate Club, East Coast Shotokan Karate Association.
