“Our 8 year old son has been attending classes at the Okinawan Karate Dojo for 2 years, and we could not be happier with the experience. His training at the dojo has provided a solid understanding of how to protect/defend himself, which has helped him build confidence in his interactions with other kids.” Click Here

Forged. Focused. Ready.

When you choose the Okinawan Karate Dojo, you are making a statement.  We stand humbly behind our belief that the environment we provide keeps students involved, committed, inspired, and prepared.  Come and reach your goals with the Okinawan Karate Dojo.

Our style of martial arts is an extremely effective and engaging style of karate from Okinawa, Japan.  As a dojo (Japanese for “way place”), we customize the structure of our classes to fit the needs of students at different ages and abilities.  Therefore, everyone can find their “way”.  Let us work with you to give you the life skills to live fit, live safe, and live long.

Regardless of the program/experience, our classes are life-altering and centered around bringing out the best in our students.  Our dojo’s team of well-trained, patient, and friendly black belt adult instructors are led by Head Instructor, Sensei Stanley Crump – 5th Degree Black belt.  Sensei Crump has been facilitating mentorship programs and teaching karate in Howard County since 1996, and has developed an appreciation for what makes karate schools good.  For more information on Sensei Crump and the other staff, please visit our instructors page.

As you approach the Okinawan Karate Dojo, you may be impressed by the safe neighborhood and surrounding community.  Or maybe it is the bamboo floors of our intimate, clean and contemporary facility that catch your eye.  No matter the reason, we are comforted by the fact that our students walk away from every experience with the Okinawan Karate Dojo stronger, leaner, energized, and confident.


Feel free to stop by our dojo, give us a call at (443)574-8999 or contact us online. We look forwarding to meeting you!
