I've had a great experience working will Coach Bill Pratt. He has met my personal needs as a collegiate athlete and I can see my improvement from week to week. He is very knowledgable about self defense and fitness in general and has a very diverse skill set. I attribute my staying healthy for the cross country season to the strength he has been building with me.

NOTHING beats the experience you'll have at Shunato Karate. As a kickboxing student, Sensei Kato has not only taught me the essentials of self defense, but in the process has also taught me confidence, determination, focus, patience, and the importance of a happy workout. I've dropped 6 pant sizes just having fun! Shunato isn't just a dojo, it's a family. You're not going to find anything else like it, so stop looking. Come join us!

For almost 10 years, Ali has been the perfect trainer for my 97-year old dad. With great sensitivity, respect and finesse, he has expertly crafted and customized workout experiences for my dad's specific and changing needs. He has helped my father to maintain his strength, independence and self-confidence by challenging him with various workout methods while always supporting him and encouraging him to stay active and fit both physically and mentally. He is patient, calm and has a great sense of humor, ensuring that their time together is enjoyable from start to finish for dad (even though it can sometimes be a challenge). While recuperating from a fall last year, dad became dangerously weak and had a hard time walking on his own or even getting up from bed or out of a chair. Ali monitored the situation closely and made sure that dad got back to the gym as soon as he was able, gradually and carefully helping him re-build his muscles, stamina and stability until he was again able to walk on his own, move freely, work out and enjoy his life as usual. The end result is that my dad is the strongest and happiest he's been in years. Ali is a treasure... a wise and consummate professional who consistently gets results!

Kris has been training me in boxing technique for a year now and i notice a huge increase in my skill level, endurance, health, and self confidence. Kris is a great mentor, setting the tone for a positive and safe learning environment. He pays attention to form and detail and pushes me hard enough where i remain interested and feel successful.

The owners are supper friendly and treat everyone like family. The self defense instructor is great, and doesn't take himself to seriously. A fantastic class and I look forward to going every week.

The 8 year old who is bullied at school was very happy with his private lesson. He's already feeling more confident and has learned some self defense moves that are appropriate for his age, height, strength level, etc. John will be doing bi-weekly one on one self defense lessons for the next few weeks and then some. As a grandma, I'm very happy my grandon is learning how to protect himself, confidence, how to get out of bully situations, etc.

Because I'm not doing this solely to get paid. I want to live in a world where a large majority of the population has studied some form of the art. I believe that if a large enough group or community train the amount of negative things that happen will decrease because they would have something that instills them with purpose and meaning.

I teach classical self defense not modern sports martial arts. This is not a fitness class and it's not Muy Ty or Kung Fu. If your looking for those please find someone teaching that. If you ARE interested in the real ancient battlefield techniques of the samurai and osoteric warriors of Warring States Period Japan, this is what you looking for. This art is a high quality self defense method that works regardless of the practitioners size, strength or age. This martial art WORKS at all levels!
