I started training Go Ju Ryu Karate at the Springfield YMCA approximately 25 years ago and had the great opportunity to train with some of the best people, Sensei Overby and I would spar pretty hard at times which only made us both that much better, I currently hold the rank of Shodan (1st degree Black Belt) which I obtained there after lots of blood, sweat and tears. I highly recommend this to anyone who may be interested in learning self defense, learning a traditional martial art, or just some basic self defense.

Best Kept Secret

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.

Feel free to message us with any questions or come by and check us out.

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

Mon-Thursday 5-7pm 
(see hours of operation for specific details & locations)
