Welcome to the web page of Visalia Karate-Do. Established by Dan Taylor in 1975, ours is the oldest Karate-Do program in Visalia. Our school and our Black-Belt instructors are certified in Japan by the Dai Nippon Butoku Kai (DNBK). The DNBK is the oldest and most prestigious martial arts organization in Japan.
Our primary discipline is Gojuryu Karate-Do founded by Chojun Miyagi in the Okinawan Islands of Japan. Our secondary discipline is Kenshinryu Kobudo (weapons) founded by Teruo Hayashi. We do not emphasize fighting or competition. Our goal is physical conditioning, self-defense, and the character building virtues of Japanese Budo.
The Chief Instructor is Kaumron Torabi. Sensei Torabi has more than 45 years experience in Karatedo. He has trained in Japan where he is certified as a Godan (Fifth Degree Black-Belt). He has also been awarded a Renshi Instructor's Title.
