Traditional Shotokan Karate dojo, Nishiyama system, expand mental and physical potential through the wisdom of karate, which is only possible when its budo, martial arts aspect is maintained.Rokah Karate is a traditional Shotokan school that offers karate classes for all ages and levels. Sensei Avi teaches every adult class himself. He and his wife, Ruth, instruct the children’s classes together. At Rokah Karate, we teach that technique defeats strength and skill conquers speed. More than a mere self-defense program, training in karate fosters mental toughness and emotional strength. Or you can just call it grit.
Sensei Avi Rokah lives and breathes karate. As a prodigy of Master Hidetaka Nishiyama, he is one of the most sought-after instructors in the world (see Seminars). In addition to being a former world and five-time US champion, Sensei Avi is also the technical director of the World Budo Karate Association. Sensei Avi studied for three decades under Master Nishiyama, who, in turn, was a top student of the father of the Shotokan style, Master Gichin Funakoshi. This continuity of instruction provides our pupils with a direct link to the founding of modern karate. Due to this lineage, in our karate classes for all ages and levels we teach only the purest form of karate.
