The University of Michigan Dojo
Shotokan Karate of Michigan was founded in 1981 at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. We are an official University of Michigan Club Sport registered with the Michigan Student Assembly (MSA). This dojo is also affiliated with Shotokan Karate of America, a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching Karate-do.
"Each one of us starts Karate with some particular reason: to be a good fighter, to keep in good shape, to protect ourself. I wanted to become very strong myself when I first began.
But Karate training soon teaches that real strength is facing oneself strictly, with severe eyes. This is the first conditioning of martial arts training. Therefore, everyone in SKA must be strong inwardly but quite gentle towards others.
As we train together, each contributing to a good atmosphere, let's try to bring out that serious, strong mentality from deep inside."
--- Tsutomu Ohshima
