A traditional school of Okinawan descent, we believe that the Martial Arts can be a great activity for the entire family. Not only do we teach solid, fundamental self-defense, but our academy focuses on core values and principles needed to succeed in every aspect of life!
We emphasize techniques that work in the real world. Having been trained by military & law enforcement professionals, James Palmer, Kyoshi (6th Degree Black Belt) and his wife, Ashleigh Palmer, Renshi (5th Degree Black Belt), lead the Olathe Karate Academy team to teach and train in a WAY THAT TRULY MATTERS!
