What is the Shotokan Special Training ?

The SPECIAL TRAINING COURSE (a series of very intense training sessions over several days) is a special feature of our organization and a vital tool for personal development, particularly in terms of mental attitude, in the Shotokan style.

The special course brings karatekas together for several days in a sports complex and follows a virtually unchanging program: at least 6 hours of daily training over 2 and a half to 4 days, corresponding to a complete review of basic training during which the aim is to surpass oneself, to push back the limits.

The aim of the special course is not to learn new techniques. The courses are long and intense: several thousand techniques, sparring with fifty or so partners, a hundred katas, an hour and a half of kiba dachi, and so on. This complete immersion in karate-do leads to spectacular progress: it breaks down self-resistance (mental blocks) more easily than less advanced training. What's more, the hours of joint effort and testing strengthen the bonds between karatekas. Many karatekas agree that the special training course was the most rewarding and challenging mental and physical experience of their lives (source: Daniel Chemla).

SUISSE SHOTOKAN KARATE® organizes three special courses a year. In May (special summer seminar with Dan grades), in September (special autumn seminar) and in January (special winter seminar).
