Olympic Karate Studio

Come Kick It With Us!

OUR STYLE

Our style, American Goju, is a transcendent of Okinawan Goju-ryu with added emphasis from Shotokan, Boxing, and Ju-Jitsu. Goju (Hard/Soft) is based on the same philosophy as Yin/Yang -- that is our opposites give us harmony in the universe. This is also the fundamental law of Physics (for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction). Dark would mean nothing without light. We balance our strengths by focusing on our weaknesses. Courage needs fear, and fear needs courage. At OKS our primary goal is to help individuals discover and attain personal balance.

OUR FACILITY

Olympic Karate Studio boast a 10,000sq foot facility with 3 large training areas, ample training equipment (heavy bags, shields, weapons, stretch machines, mats, mirrors, etc...), a weight room with exercise equipment, plenty of seating, large restrooms, and a snack shop. We are a full service professional dojo!
