Learn the true spirit of karate.  Our teen and adult karate classes cover the full spectrum of Okinawan Goju ryu Karate-do, including kata, self defense techniques, and weapons. We use positive reinforcement and mutual respect to motivate students to achieve higher levels of skill.

As students progress in rank, they realize gains in flexibility and agility, have a greater sense of confidence and well-being, and further develop the self-discipline needed to accomplish goals. The benefits of karate training carry over to the workplace, helping you think quickly, yet clearly, and maintain focus.

What Our Students & Families Are Saying

I’ve been studying here since I was in first grade -I’m now in my third year of college. I know that the dojo has made me a better person. I’ve learned many ways to defend myself, but I’ve also learned respect, restraint, and discipline.”

-Mackenzie D., karate student

You’ve had a profound effect on both of our children. I honestly believe karate improved their self-discipline and self-confidence. Thanks for all you’ve done!

-Lyn B., mother of two karate black belts off to college

Thank you for all your guidance and encouragement getting my son to black belt. Thanks for all you do with the kids.

Carolyn Dykema, State Representative

Wow! Where do I begin to thank you for all you’ve done for Anna? She has had a fun and rewarding time under you wing.

John F., karate parent

I’m sure you’ve heard it before, but you have a way with the children. I just wanted to let you know that I, as a former teacher and director of an afterschool program, and more importantly as a Mom, appreciate it!

Liz N., karate parent
