"Only The Finest in Authentic Martial Arts Since 1991" Bryan Location 
Auburn Location 
Traditional Martial Arts has been developing people's lives for thousands of years...but it isn't a secret.

At Franz Karate we are known for helping people of all ages develop a stronger, more positive ability to go through life with our authentic Okinawan Karate programs. Shorin Ryu Karate is one of the oldest, yet most progressive, forms of authentic martial arts available today. It was developed by the bodyguards of the King in Okinawa so it goes beyond the mere physical aspects and into the moral and character development ability that people thrive for their children and for themselves.

Our system has been developed to grow students into strong, capable people. You won't find any fluff in how we teach Karate at our dojo and everything is organized, developed and designed to give you the most out of your training and investment in martial arts lessons. Many schools may focus on your wallet over the quality of the art they teach you but not at Franz Karate. We are affordable and top quality in the martial arts we will teach you.

Our program develops a strong body, mind and spirit along with the balance of the three. You cannot get this in any other martial art outside of authentic Okinawan Karate. Many arts lay claim to developing one, two or three of the aspects listed above but only in a good, traditional Okinawan dojo will you find the key...BALANCE.

We have spent many years developing our program and Master Franz has been trained by some of the absolute best martial arts instructors in the world. His 38 years of training and 26 years of teaching expertise is top notch and you will always get his best. He focuses only on his students, helping them grow in their martial arts which in turn helps them grow outside of the dojo. Our classes are challenging but not downgrading, exciting but not over exerting...quite simply we teach Karate how it was supposed be thanks to the trips our Sensei have taken to Okinawa....

BUT DON'T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT...COME IN AND LEARN WITH US TODAY!

YOU WILL LOVE IT AND THE INVESTMENT WILL PAY OFF 1000 TIMES OVER!
