Tokon Martial Arts
Learning to defend oneself can be an invaluable skill. However, the shotokan karate classes at Tokon Martial Arts do more than teach students how to defend against an attack. They also help develop discipline, self-respect, leadership, and confidence—all skills that prove invaluable in everyday life. Instructors Marcus and Christina Hinschberger—third- and fourth-degree black belts, respectively—welcome adults as well as students as young as 6 to their school, using traditional Japanese training techniques to help them improve their strength, stamina, and balance while becoming more attuned with their bodies' physical capabilities. In addition to offering shotokan karate instruction for students of varying ages and skill levels, the teachers also lead classes in athletic conditioning for adults, kids, and out-of-shape team mascots.
