About Us

Sensei Dula is passionate about training his students for success and good living.  He engages with them on their level and gets to know them for who they are by offering lessons from Karate that can apply to the rest of life.  Fighting in the karate school can be a powerful lesson on how to live the best way possible with courage and responsibility.

What Can I say about Jerry Dula and his Karate school. I spent most of my childhood there. I learned alot from my time with Sensei Dula. He taught me not only how to defend myself, but how to carry myself. Now that I am grown with children of my own I hope to pass on half of what he has taught me. Here’s to another 40 years Sensei!!

I started karate under Sensei Dula in 1984, I stayed three years under his watchful eye. I actually made Black Belt in Shorin ryu. I remember being on my tail end a lot while fighting. I am now training students and I continue to fall back on what Sensei Dula taught me He has made a huge impact on many lives over the years.  Thank You Sensei !!
