About Toshindo Karate & Fitness Center
1.What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Toshindo Karate is a blend of several styles of Martial Arts using Kyokushin Karate as its foundation. As a very strong and practical style of karate, Toshindo provides its students with a sense of realism and superior self-confidence. By bringing together the energy of the mind, body and spirit, students, both adults and children, are able to concentrate on achieving worthwhile goals. Toshindo provides the tools for students of all ages to develop self-confidence, self-control, self-discipline and respect for oneself and their peers.
2. What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Toshindo Karate is a self-contained system unique unto itself. Its roots lie strongly in the Kyokushin Karate style founded by the late Sosai Mas Oyama (Tokyo, Japan) known worldwide for his explosive power and unmatched fighting technique. Shihan LaMattina was privileged to train under Sosai Mas Oyama's top student, Soshu Shigeru Oyama, for many years. Hence, Shihan LaMattina teaches his present day classes as he was taught, in Japanese as well as English, and with deep respect for the spiritual philosophy that one can and must become the best human being he can be in every sense.
3. What do you love most about your job?
We believe it is very important to be able to use what one learns without going through years of difficult training before it becomes practical and applicable. Whether it is karate, Kobudo (weapons) training, self-defense or kata (form) exercise, training at Toshindo is exciting, and there is always something new and valuable to learn.
