Our Unparalleled Standards Makes Us The Best!
You will not find another karate school in this area like Ultimate Karate Fitness Martial Arts Academy. We are not just another commercial karate club. We are dedicated to teaching excellence by giving you the most complete and effective methods of training to help you improve your health and sharpen your mind, body and spirit so that each student can reach their full potential.
Students are taught one of the oldest and most popular styles today, Shotokan Karate, an Okinawan style martial art founded by Master Gichin Funikoshi (1868-1957) and carried on by Sensei Hirokazu Kanazawa, the founder of the Shotokan Karate International Federation ( SKIF).
Shotokan is characterized by strong focus (a concentrated moment of energy) made possible by full hip motions and a total body commitment to the technique. This is formal training, based upon traditional teaching methods that gradually build up one's physical condition and mental concentration.
Shotokan karate is different from many other martial art. Instead of thrusting the beginner immediately into actual sparring and contact situations- where injuries may easily happen and where little real training can occur- Shotokan begins by teaching basic principles and movements.
All other techniques are built upon this solid foundation. With an understanding of how power and speed are generated, progress will be made towards strong and effective techniques.
People of all ages can benefit from the training that karate provides. It is not just a great form of self defense, it is a total lifestyle that promises to add enrichment while giving the opportunity to enhance your character and develop confidence, focus and leadership skills. Each class is disciplined yet fun allowing each student to develop at their own speed.
If you are looking to enhance your life or provide your children with a great foundation for a life of success, then we are excited to have you join our growing family at Ultimate Karate and Fitness Martial Arts Academy.

|Alicia Gandhi - Four years ago my son, aged 4, started at Ultimate Karate and Fitness. Since he has been going, his ability to focus in school and his self-discipline has continued to get better and better. UKF provides not only great exercise and self-defense, they also build each students character. Self-control, confidence, self-discipline, focus, perseverance and respect are only a few of the ways kids can grow while attending classes at UKF. My son, now 8, will soon be testing for his solid brown belt. My daughter, now 6, started almost two years ago and I have seen the same positive growth with her as I did with her brother.
Last September I decided to jump in. Being overweight, 38 and developing health issues by being overweight, I knew I needed to do something. Since starting I have lost over 30 pounds and two pants sizes. Along with the weight loss and improvements in my health, I have more confidence, patience, less stress and I feel empowered to take on whatever comes my way. Karate challenges my mind and body so I am never bored. This is the first activity I have ever been interested in enough to keep coming back to.
|Jon Payne - My twin daughters started taking lessons at Ultimate Karate and Fitness a year and a half ago. My wife and I felt that that it would be good exercise for them, and they attended classes twice a week. After a month of training, my daughters decided that two classes were not enough, and asked that I take them five days a week. Since then, their strength, flexibility, behavior, and focus have increased dramatically. Before long, they asked to be trained to fight and perform in karate tournaments. Since their training started, they have always placed in either first or second in their division.
My daughters’ constant improvement is attributable to the outstanding staff at Ultimate Karate and Fitness. Their patience and understanding of each student’s individual needs is their key to success. I have attended all of my daughters’ classes for well over a year and recently decided to start taking lessons. This was a particularly difficult decision, considering I had undergone knee replacement surgery. The staff at Ultimate Karate and Fitness has developed a program suited for my particular needs. In the past four months, I have lost 15 pounds and gained strength and flexibility without injury.
