Karate is one of the more complex sports disciplines, because when the students practice it, it develops the motor skills in a secure way. Its origin begins hundreds of years ago in Okinawa, which was influenced by an ancient Chinese tradition. Karate Do, literally means, the way of empty hands.
This is a reference that its followers do not use weapons, not to attack nor to defend yourself, just their feet, hands and body. Even then, Karate is much more than just physical activity, it is based in the great philosophical and spiritual tradition of Bushido.

The 2015 competition season is just beginning and after this first competition I can tell that it is going to be very exciting season. I encourage students and parent from all our programs to try to attend at least some of those events. You do not have to compete in order to participate in the event. You can come in as spectator and support Keiko Shin Team.

Check our Competition Calendar here -  or see front desk for the calendar of upcoming tournaments.

Time... how to best spend mine and my children's.  It's an age old deliberation, but it lead me to find the 'time' to share my experience at Keiko Shin Karate Academy.

I always admired the balance, control, and discipline of martial arts. The problem was finding someone/somewhere that earned my confidence enough to leave my impressionable 'Angels'.After a year of asking around, and visiting the many karate studios around Tampa Bay, my pediatrician was the one who recommended Keiko Shin Karate Academy. As a father of two, he said Sensei Ernesto and family has "done wonders" for his girls. He told me the 30 minute drive (from Carrollwood) would be well worth my time. My pediatrician was SO right!

I am extremely pleased with the changes I've seen in my boys, thanks to Keiko Shin. I'm not only referring to the physical strength, agility, and body control, but more importantly the mental strength: heightened awareness of ones' surroundings, extended concentration, and a heart-felt determination to achieve. All while keeping goodness and kindness in the forefront of their minds.
For example, this past weekend our Karate Academy entered a state competition. I've become accustomed to the (extremely) high success rate of our academy at competitions, but what made me stop to write this was the email we all received yesterday from Sensei. Our Sensei did not email us to discuss our great performance, but rather to highlight a Keiko Shin student's kindness towards a competitor from another academy. Sensei's entire email focused on praising this child for his wonderful display of humanity, and reminding our members (and their parents) about the importance of showing kindness to others. Again, I have been reminded why I am so grateful to be part of such a wonderful organization....

Kata is one of the earliest forms of karate training. It is how karate passed from one generation to the next. Kata are the pre-arranged sets of movements in which the karateka defends against several imaginary attackers in different directions. Each movement of a kata represents a self-defense technique against a potential opponent. These self-defense "applications" are traditionally called bunkai (analysis). All kata have an embusen, or performance line. This is the path of the kata, or rather, its floor plan. The movements of a given kata must always be performed in the correct order, and the kata must always start and finish on the same spot (Shotokan).
