Whitfield's Martial Arts Inc: your path to a better life

We are Shotokhan karate. Shotkhan is a style of karate, developed from various martial arts by Gichin Funakoshi (1868–1957) and his son Gigo Yoshitaka Funakoshi (1906–1945). The principles allude to notions of humility, respect, compassion, patience, and both an inward and outward calmness. It's belief, as well as all our belief, that through karate practice and observation, the karate would improve the person.

When the people of Springfield Gardens come to Whitfield's Martial Arts Inc to learn martial arts, they don’t just receive training, but a staff that is dedicated to helping them improve themselves.

Dedicated to enhancing our students

Learning a martial art can be the memorizing of moves, but at Whitfield's Martial Arts Inc we focus on teaching our students much more. Martial arts is, in some respects, a way of life. We do not mean that certain individuals earn a living from being in matches or teaching. Martial arts is a way of life because it practices mindfulness. When you practice a strike, a throw, or an exercise, the goal is to understand your body and be one with the movement. Eventually the goal is to, in time, be completely present in the moment and learn how to bring out that amount of centeredness when you need it. All the stresses in your life become much more manageable when you know how to find your center and understand that you have the mental tools you need to overcome the problem.
