The Springfield YMCA Karate Program is one of the oldest programs and best kept secrets in Springfield. Our head Instructors Shane Overby & Dave Tebrugge have over 60 years combined Martial Arts Training. Students in this class learn traditional Okinawan karate and real world practical self defense techniques. This class also focuses on discipline, respect, and motivation.
Classes are offered to adults, children, and families. Since the classes are at the YMCA there is no contract to sign up and you dont have to be a member of the YMCA to sign up. Because of the core value system of the YMCA and its mission, this class is ran more like a family organization and less like a business.

Traditional Karate classes for Adults, Teens, & Children are offered at both Springfield IL YMCA locations
