A Committment to Individual Excellence

The WKA Bellevue dojo is committed to the individual excellence of our students - in self-defense, sport, education, and careers.

We are part of the Washington Karate Association (WKA), which is one of the most respected Karate schools in the United States. Since its founding in 1966, more accolades have been awarded to WKA Instructors, Athletes and Students representing the sport than any other school in the United States.

The WKA is represented by thousands of excellent students, professionals, and community leaders whose Karate experience has been an integral part of their lifelong successes.

The WKA is a member of the International Hayashi-Ha Shito-Ryu Karate-Do Federation.
