- Shotokan Karate!!! The Joplin Karate Association, affiliated with the Japanese Karate Association, operates classes 3 days a week. The instructor trains and assists at the Tulsa club.
- Unlike popular belief that Shotokan has the least number of katas that are repeated to attain perfection, Goju ryu has almost half the number of katas. Traditionally, the Goju Ryu curriculum includes 12 katas. Students need to be proficient in all 12 to advance to the new stage of sandan.
- Zanshin Shotokan Karate Curriculum. The foundation of Shotokan Karate is built on the 5 maxims of Karate Do. Combined and infused with the truths of God’s Word. Zanshin Shotokan believes in not just cultivating the mind and body, but also nurturing the soul.
