Jerry Dula Karate provides classes throughout the week of different levels here in Asheville, NC

As a young man of 9, I needed direction in my life. I had played sports since I could remember, and I had down time when the season’s ended.  My dad decided to call upon an old friend of his that had a karate school on Tunnel Road, and thus my career in the martial arts began. I remember meeting Sensei Dula for the first time in his office, and distinctly remember a picture of him made in Vietnam when he was in the Air Force. This picture showed me that this man was a teacher and would be strict and organized. I started lessons with the school, going two nights per week but quickly realized how much I liked it, and with the best instruction around, I was excelling in it. Sensei Dula was very careful with his teachings, and never gave anyone anything they did not earn. If he thought you weren’t ready, you weren’t ready, but he made sure that he taught you why, and you were better for it. Now 30 years later, I still admire this man, and recommend anyone that is looking for the way to go see this man, and listen to what he has to say. My life impacted by his instruction from 30 years ago, and without that instruction, I would not be where I am today.

My Son started Karate with Sensei when he was 6 years old. The first combat I was really nervous, My son loved it. He learned self confidence with Sensei. And is not afraid of anything. I would rate Sensei Jerry Dula a 5 out of 5 he is a top notch Sensei. Really takes pride in his art. A great man.

Lorie Burnette

Jerry Dula Karate is the place to go in Asheville if you want to be “The Real Deal”..Karate is actually applied and employed here, not just discussed or theorized. Here, students learn to face and control fear in a disciplined and structured environment ; That discipline and structure manifests in the leadership qualities and character of the students.

George Barnwell Jr I studied under Sensei Jerry Dula for over 20 years. He is an excellent instructor and truly cares for his students. He understands that karate is essential not just for self defense, but also for a balanced person. He teaches temperence, proper attitude and respect. You learn true self defense under Master Dula, and while you hope you never need to use, it will keep you safe. He helps to build and inspire self confidence in both youth and adults. You can feel confident that what you are learning here will help to see you through life’s troubles.

Thank you Sensei Dula
