Five years.

– What’s your favorite thing about Princeton Shotokan?

Princeton Shotokan is all about learning and practicing karate in a friendly and welcoming environment, but without losing track of the fact that karate is a noble and serious art. At Princeton Shotokan you get the right amount of fun combined with an intensive training. Plus, Kitagawa sensei is an amazing teacher, and everyone is very supportive of beginners.

To me there is something uniquely satisfying in performing a fairly complicated kata well and at the right pace.
