About our Dojo

shomenA Brief History

Kazoku Karate Academy first opened its doors in September of 1969.  Since then, we have been providing martial arts instruction for over 40 years in the Totowa/Woodland Park area. While we continue to teach the same traditional Shorin-ryu karate that Herten Sensei brought back from Okinawa in 1967, we have also expanded to teaching various other programs including: Cardio Kick Boxing, Street Self Defense, Bully Self Defense, Aikijujutsu, Japanese Sword Arts, and other martial and physical fitness programs.

Because Bags Don’t Hit Back

While there are plenty of other schools offering MMA style training and physical fitness programs, our school offers you the same amount of physical fitness, but also the mental and emotional training that comes along with learning a Traditional Martial Art.  We not only train you to survive ten rounds, but also provide the knowledge to escape a deadly situation in less than 5 seconds.  True Martial Arts training teaches the use of very lethal and sometimes deadly techniques, and with that knowledge there must also be a mental and emotional attitude trained alongside them.  And while we don’t teach our young students the same deadly techniques, we still carry over the mental training of defusing typical situations that they would encounter, and the emotional training of being a courteous, respectful, and honorable person.  Self-discipline and self-control are the cornerstones of our school.
