DISCOVER YOUR STRONGEST SELF

Practice the art of Karate in a community founded to support women and those who are victimized disproportionally.
Build strength, confidence and discipline.

On Bodily Integrity

One of the most important principles of self defense is that an individual has the right to determine what happens to their own body; to maintain their own bodily integrity.

It is in this vein that the Feminist Karate Union supports a person’s right to reproductive choice, in the very strongest terms.

Practice in a Community

FKU was founded 50 years ago as a women-only organization, and it remains the case that all senseis are women. Our community is a safe, supportive place to develop mind/body balance and learn self-defense. Our focus is on those who are victimized disproportionately, including women and those discriminated against for reasons of gender identity, including non-binary and transgender.

Gain Strength, Confidence and Discipline

Together, we practice the art of Shito-Ryu, a traditional form of Japanese karate. Our class sizes are small allowing instructors to give individual attention to all students in a supportive and non-judgmental environment. Together, we gain confidence, mind/body balance, discipline and discover our strongest selves.

My son and daughter have been taking karate here for years and it has been great both for their physical development as well as their self-discipline, body control, confidence and focus.

I've been training here for over 17 years. I began out of curiosity and stayed for the challenge. The school spirit can't be beat, the workout is solid, and the skills are top-notch traditional karate.

7 years later I'm still finding new reasons to continue my training here. Amazing teachers. Supportive environment.  Continual challenges. No attitude  And always, always fun. I couldn't have picked a better school.
