Self-defense is a serious subject, but this is not the army, it is a classroom and we have fun while learning. Even the strongest building can’t stand on a weak foundation. That is why we support each other in class because you can only learn and grow if you have a strong support system to stand on. Come and meet like-minded individuals, engage with other members of your community, and have some fun!

My son has been training at O’Riley Karate Center for 9 years. I cannot say how grateful I am for the program. It has given him confidence and a sense of accomplishment. In addition, it has taught him perseverance and humility. He has had to work at everything and has not just been given his belts. Sensei O’Riley’s strict style of teaching is firm but loving. He sincerely cares about his students and not only how they do karate but how they do life.

My son has been training under Sensei O'Riley for over 2 years and I couldn't have chosen a better instructor. Not only are martial arts taught, manners and respect also are, especially for the kids. This is not a "you get promoted for showing up" program, you have to earn your rank here. I firmly believe that Sensei's methods truly prepare the students to defend themselves, learn the value of hard work, and give them a sense of accomplishment that would be lacking under other instruction.

My two children have been attending this dojo for a little over 2 years now and we love it. All of the instructors are professional and knowledgeable.
