I have been a student of Martin's Karate for nearly 10 years and I have to say this is the best karate school you'll find anywhere. I am now living in Japan and teaching Martin's style to Japanese women and they love it. Not only is his style effective (a hybrid mix of Shotokan, Ju-jitsu, and Judo), but his teaching methods and carisma are what makes this school unforgettable, invaluable, and ultimately the best. Martin makes champions out of underdogs and confident, ambitous people out of lost souls. I tried to go to other schools when I was out of the area, but I was greatly disapointed. I even tried some schools in Japan, but they did not offer the discipline, nor heed the results of Martin's karate. I reccommend this school highly, but this school is for people who are serious about learning karate. So, if you are ready to dedicate your mind and body, then this is the place for you.

I have started this karate school in November, 2005 & I must say that this is the best karate school that I have ever been in. The monthly rates are $25, school hours are Mon, Tues, Wed, & Thurs from 7:00 pm till 8:30 pm, and Saturdays are from 10:30 am till 12 pm. The students also do sparring everyday after class to inprove their skills when they sparring (fighting) at a tournament. This school has plenty of disipline & the higher ranking students are more than helpful in helping beginners with their katas (forms). It is a great school for the whole family. I highly recommend this school to anyone who want to start training in karate. The school is located in the heart of downtown Wilkes-Barre in the greater Northeast, PA.
