Peter Spence is Head Instructor at Black Tiger Shotokan Karate. Spence Sensei has over 30 years experience  in  Shotokan karate and  holds the  rank of  6thDan.  Sensei was a  student of Masakazu Takahashi, Takahashi Dojo, Amityville, NY and Minoru Horie, Horie Karate Dojo, Hartsdale, NY.

The  word karate is  a combination of  two Japanese  characters:  kara, meaning empty,  and te,  meaning hand; thus,  karate  literally  means  “empty  hand.” Adding  the suffix  “do” (pronounced “doe”), meaning “way,”

karate-do or  Karate-way 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.
