We are a family run school that creates a supportive, family atmosphere for our students allowing them to study the martial arts in an environment of encouragement and respect.

Since its opening in 2000, Alan Kessler’s Karate Center has trained students in Uechi Ryu, a traditional Japanese form of karate. Having a student know effective, self-defense techniques is an important part of what we teach but it is not our only mission.

Our primary goal is to reinforce core values through the martial arts. We encourage our students, adults and children, to use the virtues of the martial arts in all aspects of their lives. In our opinion, the most important virtue is respect for others.
