What Is Zanshinkan Karate All About?

Zanshinkan Karate is located in the Greenbrier section of Chesapeake, VA 23320, 920 Ventures Way, Suite 3.

We are members of the Kyoshin Kai Budo Renmei, and we teach Traditional Shito-Ryu Karate. 

Karate is a martial art developed in Okinawa.  Students train to develop their character, as well as the ability to defend themselves.

At Zanshinkan Karate, we offer a safe and fun training environment, using physical training to develop not only our techniques, but our mind, spirit and character.  Our focus is on teaching traditional karate and the values it instills – respect, discipline, dedication,  integrity, courage, compassion, perseverance, honor and humility.

Karate training is for everyone – men, women, children and families. You are not too young. You are not too old. You are not too out of shape. You have no limitations but those you impose on yourself.

Martial Arts Training provides many benefits:

  • Self-confidence
  • Self-discipline
  • Ability to defend yourself
  • Fitness – cardiovascular, strength and flexibility
  • Increased focus and self-control
  • Respect
  • Stress relief
  • Fun!
  • A great family activity

Come join us for a free class and let us show what we are all about. The time to start is now!

Classes are offered for children 5 – 12 years old, as well as adult classes for students 13 and up.

In addition to Karate (empty hand techniques) we also teach Kobudo (weapons) and Iaido (Japanese Sword).
