Karate Tenerife, The Home of Karate in Tenerife. We have a purpose built dojo specifically designed to welcome you to the world of Karate in Tenerife.
Our Dojo operates in a traditional Okinawan style, doors open at 5:30 PM and classes run through to 9 PM. Typically the class will start with Junbi Undo (warm-up excersises) and go on from there. You're welcome to come into the Dojo at any time during this period and train alone or with others.
Why Do Karate?
There are as many reasons to do Karate as there are people actually doing Karate but here's a few we like to focus on...
Confidence & Self-Esteem
There are a wealth of benefits that come from healthy self-confidence from helping you manage fears and maintain a positive mental attitude. Train with us and you'll discover there is no better way to build your confidence than with the Martial Arts.
Discipline & Self-Control
The bedrock of Martial Arts is founded on teaching discipline and self-control to its students. With self-discipline comes all kinds of beneficial improvements to your life including advanced focus, new found respect, better health & fitness along with having an easier time at work or school.
With these skills you'll learn to defend yourself in a variety of situations, whether life-threatening or you're being bullied in school. Not only that, but you'll gain the confidence to use - or not use - these skills to keep you and your family safe.
Sensei Roberto has practiced martial arts for more than 30 years, over 20 of those focused purely on Goju Ryu.
We hear that he also smiles but have yet to find photographic evidence of this.
When not practicing Karate he enjoys the beach, nature and being from Uruguay he also enjoys barbeques !
As a student you'll benefit from all this knowledge and experience but more than that you'll be part of a school that has a direct line of descent from Okinawa and our founder: Chojun Miyagi.
