The Shuri Karate Dojo™ (originally Kazoku Karate Dojo) was first established in the United Kingdom in 1986 by Adam Carter Kyoshi 7th dan, to teach children and adults the martial arts discipline of karate. We have now relocated to Chicago Ridge, Illinois, USA. There are classes each week for all levels and abilities.

We follow a structured syllabus to help take you from beginner to black belt and beyond. We teach traditional Okinawan karate.

Karate in Okinawa prior to the 1900's was taught as a way of protecting oneself from civilian attacks and wasn't governed by style as it is today. The karate we practise is an amalgamation of various forms of 'Koryu' (old ways) karate from Okinawa.

The main difference in the way we practice and teach our karate, is the underlying principle that all our studies are based around the use and creation of techniques to be used in actual combat rather than used in any sporting context. Our way at the Shuri Karate Dojo can be put simply, we study the ways of 'Bu', this is, we study the ways of combat which is the complete opposite to karate as a sport.

Our mission at the Shuri Karate Dojo is to promote and preserve the true essence of the art of karate and to preserve its Okinawan cultural heritage.

We are always willing to listen to suggestions and are looking forward to meeting you. Come and join us. Your Budo journey starts HERE.
