Classes are disciplined, yet fun, allowing the whole family to participate, learn and develop at their own speed. We start children from as young as 4 years of age, and our older students are well into their Fifties. We believe that people of all walks of life can enjoy the many benefits that karate training offers. Karate is not just a great form of self defense, but provides all students the opportunity to enhance their character and develop confidence, focus and inner security & encourage self-discipline and control. Karate training allows you to improve your fitness while learning something valuable at the same time. Karate certainly develops strength, stamina, and physical well-being.

Sensei Sachin Pawar says that I have committed over 20 years of my life towards the study, practice, and teaching of the martial arts, karate is a way of life, a way of being & is convinced that karate has much to offer to mankind "My purpose in teaching Shotokan at Nashik was to show what I feel is the true essence, the kernel of true karate-do: the training of body, mind, and spirit together in order to realize the fullness of human potential".

We seeks to develop in each student a 'non-quitting' spirit. No matter what the obstacle or difficulty is, we want students to feel empowered and not be overcome by any of these problems. The sincere practice of karate can impress this idea into the spirit. This is the modern interpretation of the 'BUSHIDO' (The Warrior spirit) of the samurai.

We invite you to learn more about Shotokan Karate & our philosophy, which makes Karate unique and so attractive to those interested in true Japanese martial art.
