What is the Karate Retreat?

The Karate Retreat is a week among like-minded people (focus on karateka) with two intensive karate training sessions per day (with the exception of the day of arrival and departure) under the guidance of 7th Dan Shōtōkan Karate Fiore Tartaglia.

A combination of karate training, coaching and vacation with joint activities, meals, mutual exchange and pure relaxation.

A special location in Sardinia was chosen for this - a 4-star hotel with private access to the beach.

True to the motto: KARATE. EAT. SLEEP. REPEAT.

Outside of the karate program, there is plenty of time to enjoy the benefits of this special accommodation and the island with its indescribably beautiful nature.

Non-karateka are also very welcome as accompanying persons - there are plenty of opportunities to keep busy and relax.

The Karate Retreat will be held in German, but of course every Karateka is welcome and there will be English and Italian translation facilities if required.

The Karate Retreat is ideal for ...

  • Karateka who want to experience an intensive and special week of training with the experienced karate teacher and 7th Dan Fiore Tartaglia.
  • Karateka who want to spend a week with like-minded people to train, dine, exchange ideas and relax together.

Karate training program

The karate training sessions will take place twice a day on 6 days (with the exception of the arrival and departure day) under the direction of 7th Dan Fiore Tartaglia.

The exact training times are still to be defined and adapted to the hotel's meal times. One training session is planned in the morning and one in the late afternoon.

If the opportunity arises on site for longer group excursions on certain days or if it turns out that alternative training times are more suitable and this meets with the approval of the majority, we are open to adjusting the training times on a daily basis.

Main topics
Deepening the basic principles
Developing a better understanding of karate-specific movements and principles such as contrasts, tension-relaxation, body control, coordination, breathing and more. It also shows how a bridge can be created between karate in Dōjō and your own everyday life in order to sustainably improve your quality of life.

Focus on 1-2 kata (group decision)
Learning and consolidation. Not only the technical aspect and bunkai are scrutinized, but also the basic teachings and messages of the kata.
