002Sa.JPGDaikanyama Karate School is quite unique for foreigners living in Japan: On the one hand, it combines Japanese discipline that you would expect in a Karate school but on the other hand it is friendly and warm. The founder and head-teacher, Saito-Sensi, has a 5th Dan with impeccable style and force and he will make you sweat and breathless but then he will also make the whole class laugh and smile often.

Whether you are in your twenties or fifties, it does not make a difference and you will fit seemlessly. Also if you are a woman and feel uncomfortable to be in an aggressive martial arts environment, you don't have to worry about that as DKS is not that and many classes have 80% women and the assistant teacher is a wonderful lady, Ohshima-Sensei, with a second Dan black belt who will fix the smallest imperfection in your technique. Also Daikanyama Karate School is located in a nice neighborhood, Omotesando, and you can attend as many classes as you want (once per month or 4 times per week) for the same monthly fee.

Whether you want to learn self-defense, or you want to be fit, or simply loose weight, you will achieve it and feel confortable at DKS. I personally never felt more fit in the last 30 years than I do now and I always dreaded every time I had to go to a gym, whereas now I am allways excited about my next class.

Come and try one lesson, I think you will not regret it...
