Illinois Shotokan Karate Club is Chicagoland’s premier karate school taught under the instruction of John DiPasquale, a four-time National  Champion and President of the American Shotokan Karate Association. ISKC’s karate classes help develop flexibility, strength and coordination in fun, yet disciplined activities. This program offers a good mix of strength training, with cardiovascular and flexibility exercises. Students increase their coordination, agility and poise, as well as learn lasting personal safety skills. They also benefit from the mental stimulation of learning the choreographed moves of the kata and the discipline of conforming to the class rules.

-  Uniforms and Belt-Testing are options available through the ISKC instructor.

-  Please note that the Youth, Parent/Child and Adult classes may train together.

-  Beginner students will not be permitted to register into the current session after the  second class has met.

Registration for continuers through advanced students will be accepted after the start date, but the full class fee is required.
