We are a karate training program that focuses on the basics of Shotokan karate, kata and kumite, and its application in daily life, sports and Self Defense.

We teach all ages and are mainly in the North Suburbs of the Chicagoland area. We start with young children of 5 years old all the way to adulthood.

Our main focus is to carry traditional karate, and to teach it’s focus and how to apply it in every area of a daily life.
