For 40 years, Jim Smith Karate, under the direction of Hanshi Jim Smith, has been bringing Westchester and Putnam the very best in martial arts instruction in the style of Goju-Te Karate. Although our techniques are based on century-old knowledge, it is our application of that knowledge that sets JSK apart. Our instructional methods allow students to develop a strong foundation in basic skills, and gives them the opportunity to strengthen their natural physical abilities in order to maximize their self-defense skills.
Classes are taught by certified black belt instructors and we boast a 5:1 student/teacher ratio. At JSK you will NEVER pay a belt fee or test fee. At JSK you will NEVER be “locked-in” to a contract.
