Welcome to My Blog on Traditonal Shotokan Karate-Do
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 Posted by Paul Cortissoz
Welcome to my blog on traditional shotokan karate-do. My name is Paul Cortissoz and I have been training in shotokan karate-do for the past 20+ years on and off. I am originally from Toronto, Canada but now live in NYC and am the co-owner of Way Of Life Shotokan Karate-Do in the Bronx and Westchester County, NY.
I will admit that there is a selfish interest in starting this blog as I want to generate traffic to our site and membership for our school.
Now that we have that out of the way, there is also a higher purpose for this blog. I want to generate discussion on traditional karate, shotokan or otherwise. All traditional styles are welcome. I am passionate about preserving the art form in an age where MMA dominates martial arts discussion. I also want to share my insights as I continue my training and journey in shotokan, and discuss modern interpretations of older karate texts.
I am new to blogging, so your ideas on topic areas are very much welcomed as well as your thoughts on improving the blog. Welcome to karate stances. Osu!
