Shotokan Karate

A montage of the power of Shotokan Karate demonstrated via tournaments and kumite. Shotokan Karate is a ‘hard’, ‘external’ and very effective form of Karate that focuses on strength, power, speed and decisiveness. Shotokan Karate may also incorporate takedowns, grappling and some aikido techniques. Lyoto Machida, probably the most famous Karateka in UFC history, comes from a Shotokan Karate base.
