Thaxton Martial Arts teaches the Art of Isshin-ryu Karate which was created by Master Tatsuo Shimabuku of Okinawa, and is taught to the U.S. Marines Corp. Our form of Isshin-ryu Karate is also called American Isshinryu Karate. In our program you will learn the Isshinryu system of self-defense and exercise. Our dojo is a culturally diverse family. Our students come from various ethnic backgrounds, are male and female, children and adult. Our students range in age from seven years of age through the mid sixties. Our costs are a whopping $50 per month, and our students can attend three 75 minute classes per week. Our private lessons are $20/hour.

Our vision is to empower the students that study with us. Our goal is to develop and impart a practical and comprehensive system of exercise and knowledge of self-defense. However, martial arts is not just about technique. It's also about building the individual; their confidence, character, and leadership. Our vision is to empower our students to pursue excellence in martial arts and in their personal lives.

    Sensei Thaxton is very respectful of the students abilities.While always trying to improve the student’s abilities he does not put too much pressure on the student.I am an overweight 57 year old male and have noticed improvement in my technique and how I feel after 4 lessons.
