Toyama Karate-Do began on April 26, 1969, and it was named after Hanshi Toyama Kanken, who was the Founder of our Style Shudo-Kan, in the island of Okinawa Japan. 50 years later Toyama has continued to have the same mission; which is to teach discipline, confidence, and self-defense in order to prepare them physically and mentally to lead a better way of life.
In 1991, Toyama Karate-Do branched out to Southern California, opening the first school in the United States. Toyama is the most recognized and accomplished Martial Arts Organization in Orange County, Spokane Washington, Reno Nevada, and one of the top 100 schools in the United States. Currently Toyama has more than 75 schools thruout Mexico and the United States.

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all healthy and well.

Once a new assessment of the COVID-19 spread has been conducted and everyone is safe to return, we will resume classes.For the time being and so that students can stay active and learning, we offer karate classes online thru Zoom and YouTube.
