Power & Finesse Karate
“We honor tradition and embrace innovation to create Power & Finesse”
Power & Finesse Karate is a family and community based dojo that creates an opportunity for practitioners to learn Shotokan Karate in a safe, but challenging environment.
Each of our Instructors has over 30 years of experience in Traditional Shotokan Karate.
It is from a place of time-honored tradition that we have honed our individual strengths to offer training that emphasizes finesse & power to each and every one of our students.
Sensei Luis Ocampo has incorporated his knowledge of strength and conditioning to his teaching, introducing students to their ability to create stability, connection, and power through their techniques.
Sensei Dave Gimberline is fountain of knowledge in Kata application. His progressional and practical application of Kata will bring instant depth, power and finesse to your Shotokan Karate practice.
Sensei Laura Ocampo uses her knowledge of yoga and body dynamics to bring an ease and finesse to your training.
Power & Finesse instructors put an equal emphasis a Kihon, (basic techniques) Kumite, (sparring) and Kata (form).
“The ultimate aim of Karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in the perfection of character.” ~ Gichin Funakoshi ~
