Instructors Master Jose L. Zapata (L) Sensei Josué A. Garcia


At Ocala Karate Club we believe in traditional martial values and virtues in observance of Bushido for moral character development and discipline of the mind, body and spirit.

Many fighters today elevate pride, ego, selfishness and praise above honor, humility, duty and respect.

As mixed martial artists we understand both the value of warrior spirit and the virtue of traditional martial discipline as cultivated through the process of orthodox training.

This warrior ethos of balance within Japanese Budō or "Way of War" truly lasts a lifetime.  

Our goal? The creation an upright balanced fighter without the watering down of moral and ethical tradition or the essence of legitimate martial technique.
