About Our Students

“My husband served in the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War era and was stationed for part of his time abroad on Okinawa. It was there that he studied Isshinryu Karate under the tutelage of the founding master himself, Tatsuo Shimabuku. When we lived in Randolph, our 3 children studied Karate at an Isshinryu Dojo in Rockaway under a trainer named Scott Klinger who went on to become the Sensei of East West Karate. The instructors are all competent and caring, and my grandson has enjoyed the martial arts experience that they provide. He has not only benefitted from learning the techniques the students are taught but has also widened his already expansive circle of friends in the process.”
