Sierra Dojo is the home of real Okinawan karate. We teach what works; proven by decades of practical use by law enforcement and others who have to know how to defend themselves. To quote Master Isham Latimer, ninth degree black belt and veteran police officer, “It’s sweet for the street.”

Put down the iPod, cell phone, and turn off the TV. Spend quality time in an honorable pursuit that builds self-confidence, keeps you in shape, and gives you a fighting chance in your everyday life.

Since our inception in 1999, our goal has been to provide a place to expand and develop our own skills and give others the opportunity to do so, too. Our seasoned instructors work personally with each student at every class, and through this method a student gains insight into what works and what doesn’t. We believe in leading by example, and strive to be role models of integrity, honor and discipline.

Give yourself a fighting chance.
