 Help Talim Israel Palomino go to Karate National Championship July 15, 2015

My son Talim Israel Palomino, started his karate training when he was 8 years of age. These past 3 year he has poured in a lot of hours of effort to be the best he can be.
Not only in Karate but also in academics. This past year he was nominated to be part of the Junior Honor Society. He has been a straight A Student during all of 6th grade. We are very proud of him.

As a karate athlete he has been awarded State Champion for the last 2 consecutive Years and Qualified for Nationals 4 times but due to financial costs we have not been able to take him.

This time we decided to due fund raising but have come up short.

We hope that we can count on kind hearted people to donate to help his dream come true by competing in July 15 Karate National Championships in Fort Lauderdale , Florida.

Shotokai USA has been providing men, women and children with quality martial arts instructions since late 1960’s. Our primary focus is to create an environment that enables students to develop intellectually, physically and ethically. At SHOTOKAI USA, we pride ourselves in our student curriculum and class structure.

Fitness

Fitness is a crucial element at Shotokai USA, especially where children are involved. Warmups with jumping jacks, pushups and stretches are common, and the movements of the martial art itself often challenge your muscles and cardiovascular system. Karatekas are known for being toned, flexible and physically fit, and your child will be no different.

Self Defense

The ability to defend yourself against an assailant is an empowering feeling. Self defense is not the cornerstone of our entire program, but you can be certain that with regular practice of Traditional Karate, you or your child will learn to defend himself in a variety of different ways. We also promote street-smart techniques so one may avoid problems altogether.

Self Discipline

Shotokai USA will help instill mental focus in your child, giving her the ability to concentrate on a task and see it through to its conclusion. The discipline that is taught in the dojo in regard to uniforms, customs and techniques often translates into other areas of life, including school and household chores.

Respect

Shotokai USA is  all about respect. Punching, kicking, throwing and locking are all secondary to the respect that is shown form the moment you walk into a dojo. Children learn to bow to the masters who came before them, and to their current instructors. They also learn to treat other students as they wish to be treated. Here at Shotokai USA we press upon the respect issue regularly and instruct students to practice respect for self, parents, teachers and peers at every opportunity.

Self Confidence

A child who is involved in Shotokai USA Karate is generally a child who is confident in herself. Working through the art of Karate and the belt ranking system gives a child measurable goals to follow that are realistic to attain. The sense of accomplishment a child feels by mastering a new technique or graduating to a new belt follows him everywhere he goes.
