Located on the border of Lynnfield and West Peabody, our school also serves the surrounding communities of Middleton, Salem, Danvers, and Saugus. Our Karate Classes and Programs afford children and adult students a truly unique experience to study traditional karate under the guidance of a master instructor, all while enjoying the aesthetic and function of the school's newly constructed dojo, inspired by classical Japanese architecture.

The school utilizes a continuous enrollment system which allows you to start your training in Karate at any time throughout the year. New students are given introductory lessons on an individual basis so that the student can practice at his/her own pace. We always encourage prospective students to visit and observe a class.

Sanseiryu Kata – Uechi Ryu by Charles Quimby


This is a world class traditional karate training center and we feel lucky to have found Sensei Quimby and his assistants. He is not only a world class karate instructor but also a teacher and a role model with impressive personal integrity and discipline. He has an amazing ability to adjust not only the level of karate techniques he’s teaching to various age groups but even his personality changes depending on the age group. His deep knowledge of sports physiology will regularly show itself as he teaches but never to overwhelm his students ...
