Our Dōjō

Established in 1993, CMKS teaches Traditional Karate and weapons that originated in Okinawa, Japan.  The Style of Karate is Seibukan Shorin-Ryu and the Style of Kobudo (Ancient Fighting Ways) is Matayoshi Kobudo. The private dojo is located at 3790 Smith Lane in Coal Mountain, GA, 45 miles north of Atlanta in Forsyth County.

Our training curriculum begins with basic exercises to build the body and balance for students of all ages and physical abilities.  The training is ideal for both men, women, teenagers and children because it's effectiveness is based on speed and agility, rather than physical size and strength.
