About this pro

Our mission is to train students in karate, which is a highly effective self-defense system that also enhances emotional self-control, concentration skills, physical and mental fitness, and provides stress reduction and increased confidence.

We are dedicated to teaching traditional Shotokan karate; one of the most effective and popular martial arts in the world.

We try hard to keep training simple, rigorous, practical, and to provide a challenging and positive experience for all of our students.

All instructors at Fremont Shotokan Karate have a passion for teaching traditional karate. I enjoy watching our students progress as they learn techniques and become more disciplined, centered and stronger.

    1. I noticed the students where very focused in what they're doing. They took the lessons by heart 2. Despite the ratio of Sensei : students, each student was given attention. Each students are monitored so to speak. 3. Sensei Bernardo and the other Masters (my apologies for forgetting their names) commands authority during the class and friendly outside the class. 4. Rules are clear. 5. My children always look forward to attending their karate class. 6. The facade, working area and the restrooms are well maintained. 7. I am very impressed with the force exerted while doing their Kata. 8. The fee is very affordable.
