Bushiken Karate is a traditional Japanese martial art based on the teachings of Soshu Shigeru Oyama. Bushiken Karate offers classes for all ages and ability levels 6 days/week.

Our style stays true to its roots, with continual evolutions to have practical use as the modern world changes. Classes will give you the opportunity to push yourself to whatever limits you set, with every safety precaution in place to ensure you can keep coming back for more. We believe in the results of real training, so every rank is earned through serious training and rigorous testing.

Our organization hosts fighting and kata tournaments twice per year and also competes in other organizations’ local and international competitions. Our tournaments have full-contact, semi-knockdown competitions, not point-system sparring.

We also instruct women’s self-defense courses, host instructional events for school and youth groups, perform demonstrations at events, run after school programs, and have kids’ summer camps.

Karate training has many benefits beyond self-defense training, and can help you in many aspects of life. Watch as you and your loved ones develop:

  • Self-confidence
  • Physical fitness
  • Respect for self and others
  • Discipline
  • Focus of the mind
  • Patience

And many, many more.

We believe that karate is for everyone, and put the spirit of the art above all else. We do not lock you into long-term contracts, and we do not charge first-time visitors for trying a class. See for yourself firsthand what karate can do for you.
