Special Update: While the physical dojo is closed, the virtual dojo is open. I am doing online classes and giving out assignments. Send me an email if you have not received yours yet. We must stick together during this strange new time. DON'T FORGET TO PRACTICE!!!!

March 28 - Shorei Goju Ryu Seminar - Postponed to a later date. TBA
Karate, which means “empty hand” in Japanese, is a science of unarmed self-defense and counterattack. Rather than using a weapon, the person using Karate employs parts of the body (the hand, fist, finger, elbow or foot) to ward off assault and to injure the attacker by striking them with a severe blow to a vulnerable area or weak spot. Students practicing Karate will learn confidence, self discipline, goals setting and self defense.
Karate classes are open to both adults and children (ages 6+). Families are allowed and actually encouraged to train together as well. Every student will start as a beginner with a white belt in Karate and then work their way through the belt ranks. If you decide to join this Karate community your path will be unique. It is hoped that through Jeanie Gensheimer Martial Arts, you will be able to find the very best within yourself.
Classes are offered three times a week at The Riviera Club and students may choose how many days they attend. We also teach karate classes at Indianapolis area public and private schools.
Join us for summer camp! We teach karate and gymnastics camps at Orchard, Sycamore, Park Tudor, St. Richard's and the Riviera Club.
