Transcript DEFENSE self control, defense Television, movies, and stories have sensationalized martial arts in the eyes of the public. However, devoted students learned the true tenets of karate in the Shotokan Karate Club. One of the primary focuses of karate was respect, and it was evident in everything the group did. The prac tices began with the students bowing -- in deference to the sensei, to each other and to the dojo, or training floor. This attitude often came as a bit of a surprise for the new students, but they learned from the examples of the more experienced members. The group held weekly practices in which the students worked with other members at equal skill levels to improve their moves. They were able to demonstrate what they had learned at the open houses, and at the competitions they attend- DOWN FOR THE COUNT Guest instructor Patrick Richoux disarmed a volunteer at the Shotokan Open House. Moves like this reinforced karate's most important motive: defense. Photo by Pin Lim "Humility is key: this is not about showing off, but about improving oneself." Elias Sanches ed. There were places for students of all different abilities, from beginner to expert. Some members even brought their children to learn as well. "In order to advance, the students must all teach;' Sanches said. "The children give them a great opportunity to do that;' In addition to their regular classes, the Shotokan Karate Club offered some specia events, such as their self- defense seminar. This gave students, particularly females, a chance to come and learn basic protection moves. "Everybody should know how to defend themselves;' Sanches said. No matter what skill they were teaching, the Shotokan Karate Club members remained focused on improving their skills and determined to uphold the traditional karate teachings.
