“The ultimate aim of the art of karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in the perfection of the characters of its participants.”
— Gichin Funakoshi
Thank you for your interest in our karate dojo. The Indianapolis Shotokan Karate
Club is affiliated with Shotokan Karate of America (SKA), a nonprofit organization teaching traditional Karate-do since 1955.
Here, you can learn karate as it’s been taught in the United States for more than 50 years and in Asia for centuries before that—as a unique school of self-improvement through rigorous and focused training. Our training emphasizes karate as an art, not a sport.
We remain true to the traditional methodology
handed down from master to master and generation to generation.
Senior Instructors: John Teramoto (Godan) and Brad Markisohn (Sandan)
