Martial Arts


Illinois Shotokan Karate Club is Chicagoland’s premier karate school taught under the instruction of John DiPasquale, a four–time National Champion, US National Coach, and President of the US National Karate Association.

Our Adult classes release tension, develop total body fitness and build stamina and overall productivity! In addition to self–defense skills, karate increases flexibility, cardiovascular endurance, and muscle tone, while improving core strength.

Parent/Child classes are a great way to spend quality time with your child, while conditioning muscles, developing coordination, and improving cardiovascular fitness.

  • 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 for 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.
