Sensei Theraun, I wanted to thank you for sponsoring our Robotics teams. The older team have completed their Qualifier Competition and the younger teams are off to the Expo event this weekend!! They learned about teamwork, designing sturdy buildings, public speaking, programming, and lots more!!! We appreciate your willingness to support these 18 kids as they learned valuable life lessons!!!
So, so proud of you little ninjas! Y’all ROCK!!! πŸ’œπŸ₯‹πŸ’œ
Dr. Jens are famous :) and the best is that as transportation engineer I am all for transit! Way to go supporting our bus system and making the world a more beautiful place with options for all!
ABSOLUTELY AWESOMENESS! I cried!
Osu Everyone!! I am proud to announce that Japan Karate Institute James Island has a NEW LOCATION!! Due to our increasing number of students we have out-grown our previous location and have relocated! Our new address is Hope's Treasure Chest plaza, 1528 Folly Road, Charleston South Carolina, 29412. We are located in Building 2! I am extremely excited about our new move to a larger location! It signifies our growth as a dojo and as a family here at Japan Karate Institute James Island! I have mentioned to all of our students at JKIJI that it would happen in this manner. As we grow, changes will occur. Without change there can be no progress moving forward. I am honored to say that these changes that are occurring are changes anyone would love to see in an organization. I have no doubt that we will continue to excel to even higher heights and continue to growth in number! With our change of location, also comes our change in class times! The class times will be listed on our facebook site as well as our other social media sites. Please ensure that you check out our new schedules. Our first class will begin tomorrow July 12, 2017. Our little ninjas program begins at 6:00pm to 6:30pm and our evening class begins at 6:45pm to 7:45pm. ALL students from neighboring dojos are invited to come and train with us! If anyone has any questions as to the address or times of our classes, please do not hesitate to contact me at anytime! I want to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers through our transitional phases to success here at Japan Karate Institute James Island! I can ensure you all that we will continue to move forward and grow!!

HAPPY 6TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY JKIJI!!!! I began this journey with four students, Sempai Carlin Dooley (Asst. Head Instructor of Japan Karate Institute James Island), William Thompson, Raymond Harris, and Brandon Harris. Sempai Carlin grew into a great Instructor, and great friend who has been there when no one else was. We have had our ups and downs with building the dojo, more downs in the beginning. However, one thing we have never done was quit or stop when difficulties arose. We always regrouped, adjusted, and succeeded. I am so blessed to have had the people in our corner since day one of our opening. As I write this, I am not afraid to say, that I have tears in my eyes. I cannot thank everyone enough who has been there through the thick and thin. I've always tried to ensure that my character, integrity, and professionalism shines throughout everything that I have done for the dojo. I have done everything in my power to ensure that my Instructors do the same. There are soo many that I want to thank, but I know that I'd be here writing a book. So I will mention a few. To my best friend Deon Flowers, you are my best friend and brother for life. There is not a time that you did not support me and even put up with my stubbornness throughout the years lol. Thank you so much for never giving up on me brother. Shihan Dale Coker (Founder of Japan Karate Institute), thank you for your wisdom throughout the years. Sensei David Mitchell (Assitant Chief Instructor of Japan Karate Institute), thank you for your guidance throughout the years and training me to be the best I can be. Sensei Todd Caroll, thank you for your kindness, professionalism, and overall support throughout the years. To Sempai Jennifer Fiorini, thank you for being such a wonderful friend, student, and supporter throughout this journey. You have never stopped believing in me and I am honored to know you and call you friend. Sempai Brian Vaughn, thank you for being such a great friend throughout this journey brother. Brett Singleton, thank you so much for being there throughout the years brother. When I'm down you would find a way ensure to me that I would preservere and I always have. Above everyone, I thank The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for protecting and strengthening me throughout my journey and my entire life. Thank you all for everything. I cannot say it enough!!

HAPPY 6th YEAR ANNIVERSARY JKIJI!!

Osu everyone!!! Japan Karate Institute James Island is heavily involved in its communities and schools!! Karate is not just a way to develop structural attributes in kids and young adults, but it is also a way to reach the youth and mentor them in the trials and challenges of life. This is my goal for every child that I come upon. We want to thank the Burke youth football team for coming in and conducting some Karate training on last evening!! You guys joined our students and ROCKED that class!! It was great to fellowship and meet such wonderful children!! You guys did such a wonderful job and we look forward to future ventures with you all!! You are a talented and wonderful group of students with more potential than you can imagine!! As I mentioned in class, you all have the potential to do anything you put your mind to, and Sensei will help you in anyway that he can!! I want to thank one of our very own, Sempai Jen for also organizing and planning this event! Not only is she fierce in training, she fiercely passionate about these young leaders of tomorrow, as I am. I will continue to assist in anyway that I can to ensure the success of our youth!!

Osu everyone!! We are proud to say that our pre-test examination was a huge success!!! We are so proud of our students and their progression in their training!! It is tradition at our dojo that we conduct a pre examination before our actual test!

We are pleased to say that there were not many adjustments that we had to make!! We are especially proud of our white belts as they have set a milestone on their Karate journey by attending their first test!! We have had ot of growth at the dojo and we look forward to even more to come!! Congratulations everyone!!!
