Custom Karate Animal Guide

The tiger is the traditional animal guide of Shotokan. The animal guide of Custom Karate is the Mongoose.

The mongoose is naturally a social, curious and passive creature, however when threatened, has been gifted by nature the ability to defend itself with an aggressive and decisive skill to attack.

In situations that a student is required to defend against aggression, it is appropriate to release the power of the Mongoose.

This need in no way suggests that the student is essentially aggressive by nature.
