Could YOU defend yourself or loved ones if ATTACKED??

It’s a dangerous and confusing world we live in today.  Kids and teens are being faced with more now than ever before—bullying, peer pressure, drugs, alcohol, and more. In fact, the current staggering statistic is that children ages 10-17 represent the largest number of rape victims, at 34% of all rapes in South Carolina (*compared to all reported victims in other age groups. Statistic courtesy of the SLED SC Crime Book 2012).


We want our children and teen students to be prepared for a self-defense scenario at all times. We strive to help them become situationally aware and confident so they are less likely to become a target for bullying or a real life attack.  We want our students to be surviors, not victims!



We strive for our students to be not just successful in self-defense, but in life. Therefore, we teach life skills and values such as truth, honor, and integrity. The manner in which we instruct our kids and teens reflects these goals as focus, discipline and respect are at the core of our classes.  We expect our students to develop these mannerisms and use them not just at the karate school, but at home and school as well.  We are here to work with parents to help their children become the best them they can be!

Mr. Owens is a great martial artist and one of the best instructors I've had the pleasure to train with. His leadership and love of the martial arts have set him apart from his peers.

Mr. Owens teaches an awesome martial arts class. I've been attending his school for a year now and I have accomplished more than I ever thought possible!

Love that he allows a [trial] to come and work with the other students and instructors to see if this is the right place or not. Also makes the learning fun and interesting while being strict. A good strict. Very impressed with everything they offer.

My son is a very intense boy and training at Shorindokai has been wonderful for him. He's learning self-discipline, self-control and confidence. I'm looking forward to watching him grow more under Mr. Owens tutelage.
