Kitsap Karate by Butokukan  
Our Programs & Classes

Students and enthusiasts of Karate have many reasons for their interest in this and other martial art styles. Some are drawn to the physical fitness and weight-loss aspects of training. Others seek to add discipline and self control to their lives. While still others are concerned about safety and self-defense.

Whether you are interested in our programs for mental or physical well being, Kitsap Karate by Butokukan offers a number of programs that will fit your developmental needs and your busy schedule as well.

Junior Karate
The junior class is for children ages 6 to 12. Butokukan Karate is a great way to teach children coordination, self-control, and discipline. A part of the training is how to respond to bullying. Students are provided with a handbook with class rules, terminology, our history, and a check list of what they need to know for promotion. Classes are available on Mondays from 6:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. and individual instruction Saturdays 10am to noon.

Self-Discipline-An integral part of instruction
Butokukan offers a structured class which lends to self-discipline. During class, the students will follow rules of conduct and ettiquette, laying the foundation for becoming more disciplined and self-directed in aspects of their lives aside from Karate class.

Self Defense and Practical Application
Port Orchard Butokukan offers a wide variety of practical application of the techniques we teach. Emphasis is put on effectiveness with self-control, complete with the legal aspects of self-defense (when to use force, and how much force to use) as part of the instruction.

Competition Karate
Tournaments are a test of how well students compare to other Butokukan schools and other styles and a test of how well the student performs under pressure.
