Our Shotokan Karate Do school is named IkeNamiKan. IkeNami means ‘wave in the lake’ referring to the expanding circular wave pattern a pebble can make in a lake. This is also visualised in our logo. Our school is built around the concept of making small changes that have a big impact down the line, just like a small pebble falling in the water can move the water at the edges of a lake, just a small change in a movement can perfect a technique, just like training karate can change one’s life over time.
At IkeNamiKan we are unique in our focus on good phyiscal skills such as motoric skills, joint mobility and fitness as well as mental skills, such as stress resistance, creativity and problem solving.
We combine century old experience with the latest knowledge on biomechanics, training methods and mental coaching.
