Our school is dedicated to building a strong community one black belt at a time.

"The ultimate Aim of Karate lies not in victory or defeit but in the perfection of the characters of their practitioners" Gichin Funakoshi (founder of modern karate)
We hope that we can be your choice school of martial arts for your entire family. This school prides itself in its quality, original, correct Shotokan Karate Training. No other school in Killeen Texas has the correct training in Shotokan Karate. This emphasis in teaching original Karate is due to the years of studying karate under many credible Japanese Instructors. I make this statement with no reservations. Only with correct training one can improve.
When you enter this dojo (school) it is with one purpose. Karate is a way of life. The purpose of Karate is to polish, discipline and improve the person.
