    If you are looking for Excellence, Here it IS!!

    If you want to be the BEST you have to TRAIN with the best.. Sensei Lyoto and Chinzo Machida are not only great instructors but great practitioners of Karate as well.

    They bring their experiences of real fighting from their mixed martial arts success and deliver their knowledge to their students in such a graceful manner.

    They make it very easy to learn from them while motivating and helping their students reach for their full potentials.

    They offer beginner level classes for kids all they way up to the advanced levels for even the experienced blackbelt to enjoy.

    Their teaching is methodical and systematic and it appeals to those looking for a practical approach to their training for self defense skill development as well.

    They have plenty of parking available around the area and their facility is the nicest you will ever see.

    Their dojo is clean, pleasing to the eyes and very Japanese.

    They even offer a free class trial in case you want to check out their work outs.

    It looks like Machida Karate Academy is here to stay and I would highly recommend stopping by and giving it a try if u want a quality based and family environment for yourself or your kids.

    Two thumbs up!!

    Machida Karate is really a unique and specialized form of Shotokan Karate. Since starting here last November, I must say I have noticed a great improvement in my physical conditioning, but also in my mood and my attitude. If you want to learn how to defend yourself, or are interested in picking up a new hobby, I highly recommend you giving Lyoto & Chinzo Machida's new Karate Academy a chance. Trust me you will not be disappointed!

    Machida karate es por muchas razones, lo mejor que le ha podido pasar al karate, sin importar el estilo. En tiempos de UFC y MMA, es grato saber que la mística del karate se mantiene, y combina su esencia de origen, con las nuevas técnicas de lucha en el suelo, y de aplicación a la realidad de nuestro tiempo. Mucho éxito en su consolidación y expansión 👍

    I’ve never been so humbled to train anywhere, as the training with Chinzo Sensei is awesome and hospitality is beyond compare. Forget the publicity these guys have, because they seem to. Amazing people.

    Todo ha cambiado... en estos tiempos de MMA y UFC, el MACHIDA KARATE, es la mejor expresión del karate, para el mundo. Esta nueva forma de presentar el karate shotokan...de no opacarse frente a los estilos, que contemplan técnicas de lucha en el piso, la adaptación a una situación real, es simplemente muy gratificante. Los mejores deseos y esperamos se expanda pronto a Sudamérica, en especial a Bolivia 👍
