Best place to practice! Traditional karate teaches self discipline and respect for others along with fellowship. Very nice facility also.

I live in Texas and I take private lessons with Sensei Coburn. I highly value my time and I judge my time training with Sensei Coburn very well spent. His experience with and dedication to our beautiful art is unquestionable and his ability to teach is exemplary: attention to detail, organization, clear communication, patience, positive comments that encourage renewed effort, constructive criticism that is well delivered. I look forward to our lessons.

Shotokan Karate of AZ continues to be the best decision I have ever made for myself. I could not ask for a better karate family.

Review №5

Started Shotokan when I was 12, now Im 34, had an different instructor when I was younger who was amazing, Sensei Stan. 🙌 Sadly I had to leave when I moved at 15 years old. I then joined the Marine Corps and now Ive EASed. I was looking for an shotokan dojo, but was difficult to find for many years. Finally I found this one and was a little hesitant, but they honored my certificates and even knew my old Sensei. This gave me confidence in the authenticity of their dojo. I do like the enviornment, the training and this Sensei. I would recommend this place based on all my previous martial arts training. Ive enrolled my son and plan to enroll my 2nd son, now that hes older.

Review №12

Best karate school I’ve seen. It’s traditional and authentic, and internationally renown. I always look for the best for our daughter, because I need to make the best use of my time. The training at Shotokan Karate of Arizona is excellent – it is intense, but the children are provided opportunities to have a ton of fun when they earn it by training diligently. All the karateka – children and adults – are accomplished inside and outside the Dojo. And, everyone has each other’s backs. We feel privileged to be a part of this Dojo. An additional benefit is that training is provided up to 6 days per week for one extremely affordable price. I highly recommend it. I am so glad I found them, and our daughter LOVES training here.

Excellent dojo! We have been with Sensei Coburn since 1999 and just enrolled our two young children. This is a traditional school which focuses on true Shotokan karate and teaches focus, respect, physical and mental discipline all while having some fun along the way. Great for the whole family!

Review №15

This Karate Dojo is the Best I have ever seen. Everything about it is first class. They have some of the best instructors including Sensei Chuck Coburn, a former world champion and world competitor for many years, with over 45 years of experience as Chief Instructor (Sensei). Their traditional ways of training and teaching is as close and as authentic as you can get to the way they train in Japan. My sons and I are so thankful to be able to train with such high quality Karate Dojo, yet conveniently located right off the US 60 freeway and Alma School Road, inside beautiful Fiesta Mall. Hope to see yall all there!

This is truly an excellent choice for those who want to learn karate. With Sensei Chuck Coburn, you can be assured of quality instruction.After over 40 years of teaching traditional karate in the east valley, his passion for karate is as strong as ever. Knowing this, rest assured that at this dojo the quality of instruction is at a very high level. There are karate camps and clinics held at this dojo often where different Senseis from various parts of the world (guest instructors) come and teach. Again, training and instruction at a very high level.Speaking of training. Yes, the training is intense. Anything of great worth requires hard work. Karate is no different. Its that way for everyone on the dojo floor. People from all different walks of life focusing on one thing - karate training. All treating each other with courtesy and respect. A truly awesome experience.You might ask,how do you know this? To answer that, lets go back in time to early 1986. At the time I was a 15 year old from a very small school with a desire to learn self defense, and to build confidence. My parents took me to....you guessed it - Sensei Coburns dojo. There are karateka that I remember from 1986 that still train with Sensei Coburn today. I think that says a lot about the dojo as a whole.Its been a few years since Ive been training at the dojo ( 2008 was the last time ). So although I dont currently train in karate, Ill never forget the experiences training, and the relationships with the people at the dojo. Fun times.I encourage all who are either thinking of taking karate, or getting your child started in karate to check out this dojo. Go inside and sit down while class is in session. Observe. You wont be disappointed.Rusty Kelly

The antipathy of the McDojo. First class instruction, atmosphere and values.
