Spiritual Development of Individuality in Mind and Body.
At Japan Karate and Judo Center, we offer programs to men and women of all ages and children as young as 5 years old in a family-oriented environment.
Dojo Members are our Extended Family Members. We treat each student equal as our philosophy is that "No student is bad, we only need qualified teachers for them to learn and succeed" and we are proud that we have a team with over 100+ years of combined experience. When a new member joins us, we welcome them wholeheartedly.
We encourage anyone interested in joining to come by the Dojo and view a class.
As part of our introductory programs, we teach the following in addition to the Karate core skills:
Students of the Japan Karate and Judo Center become members of the Shorinjiryu Watanabe-Ha Karate-Do World Federation, and are expected to attend clinics (master classes), and tournaments, scheduled throughout the year. The clinics and tournaments are located in Maryland, New Jersey, New York City, Long Island, NY, and Montreal, Canada; and the schedule is located on the Events page of this site. Attendance at these events is mandatory, as they are part of the testing and promotion process.
