WHAT IS SHOTOKAN?
Shotokan is a form of karate developed in Okinawa more than 100 years ago. It was introduced in mainland Japan during the early 1920’s and then spread to the rest of the world during the 1950’s.
Today, there are thousands of Shotokan schools worldwide; however, only a few recognized organizations teach Shotokan Karate-do in its traditional way. Through its traditional practice, Shotokan helps individuals to develop positive mental and physical skills applicable to everyday life. The key is in the constant search not only for technical perfection, but for human character as well.
SENSEI RENE CANALES
Born in Lima-Perú, Sensei Canales started practicing Shotokan at the age of six under the instruction of Sensei Marcos Moron, five-time World Champion. Moved to Texas during the 1990’s, he has been teaching and promoting world class champions in Traditional Karate.
His methodology consists in combining the philosophical and technical aspects of self-defense, Zen, and Budo to develop skills for solving daily life problems and to provide physical and mental wellness.
Sensei Canales holds a 4th Dan Black Belt and is the sole representative in Texas of the Shotokan World Karate-Do Federation. He constantly travels and attends seminars to bring the best to his students.
