The Black Tiger Karate School has been founded by Sensei Dino Ianiero. His principal beliefs has helped the community with the fundamentals he has learned over the years. He delicately has been teaching hands on with students over 3 generations and still being a positive role model for the community.

The word karate is a combination of two Japanese characters: kara, meaning “empty,” and te, meaning “hand;” thus, karate means empty hand. Adding the suffix -do (pronounced “doe”), meaning “way,” i.e., karate-do, implies karate as a total way of life that goes well beyond the self-defense applications. In traditional karate-do, we always keep in mind that the true opponent is oneself.

Shotokan’ founder Gichin Funakoshi has said that “mind and technique become one in true karate.” We strive to make our physical techniques pure expressions of our mind’s intention, and to improve our mind’s focus by understanding the essence of the physical techniques. By polishing our karate practice we are polishing our own mentality. For example, eliminating weak and indecisive movements in our karate helps to eliminate weakness and indecision in our minds–and vice versa.

“The one who strikes first is the lesser man” Gichin Funakoshi
