Welcome to Billy Smith's American Karate

We're passionate about helping people improve their lives with martial arts.., especially through American Karate. American Karate incorporates the "most useful" elements of Japanese, Okinawan, and Korean Karate. It may also use techniques from other martial arts, like Jujitsu, Aikido, Judo, Kung Fu, kickboxing, and boxing. American Karate focuses primarily on the sport (sparring) aspect of karate but also includes a practical self-defense regimen.

"To win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the highest skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the highest skill."
- Sun Tzu


Karate is a martial art developed in the Ryukyu Islands in what is now Okinawa, Japan. It was developed from fighting methods called te "hand" and Chinese Kenpo. Karate is a striking art using punching, kicking, knees and elbow strikes, and open hand techniques.


Self Defense

Self Defense techniques are ones that allow individuals to protect themselves and others from harm from unarmed and armed opponents. The self defense techniques taught here are used to disable and disarm a situation with minimal force for a given situation.
