Not sure they were ready for a beginner, seems like you should come with karate experience. Assumed it would be aimed more towards fitness. Great people though. Really nice.

About this studio

ISKF Santa Monica is a fully-accredited traditional martial arts dojo, teaching Shotokan karate to men, women and children for over 35 years under Sensei James Field, an 8th-degree black belt. Karate is a centuries old martial art, formally introduced in Japan by Master Gichin Funakoshi. Since the 1950s, karate has been practiced throughout the United States and other parts of the world. Karate is an excellent exercise, utilizing 90% of the body muscles. The mental aspects are as important as the physical. The main objective of karate training is development of character, although karate is also a practical and effective self-defense system.
