Welcome to the NWLA Martial Arts, the home of Matsukan Karate! First let me say thank you for your interest in our school (dojo). We take great pride in offering what we feel is martial arts instruction in all of Shreveport and Bossier City and the surrounding Ark-La-Tex area. We not only strive to keep our standards set to the highest levels, but we work very hard to keep our instruction as affordable as possible so anyone that is truly interested can afford to attend classes. We encourage you to check out other martial arts schools in the local area. Watch their classes, ask to participate, ask about ALL cost associated with their classes.
Then return to our Dojo and watch one of our classes in comparison. Finally, we ask that you participate in one of our classes before you make your final decision on who you will trust yourself and/or your family’s instruction to.
We offer instruction in Okinawan Shorin Ryu Karate with Traditional Japanese Combat Jujutsu & Judo shared through out the program for a well rounded self defense art. All three of these empty handed styles are of Okinawan and/or Japanese decent, and each has its own strengths and weaknesses. We believe that in order to be a well rounded student of the martial arts it is important to at least obtain a working familiarity of the throwing and grappling techniques of Jujutsu and Judo as they will only compliment the techniques taught during instruction in Shorin Ryu Karate. Again, I very much appreciate your interest in our school and look forward to training you. If you have any questions feel free to call me any time.
