Owner / Chief Instructor 

Pawnee Shotokan Karate Club

Proud Members of the ITKO

​ We are a small club with a big heart in Pawnee, Illinois about 15 miles south of the state capital Springfield. As the owner and chief instructor of Pawnee Shotokan, I strive to uphold the karate ideals laid down by Master Gichin Funakoshi, founder of Shotokan and father of modern karate.

We have students ranging in ages from 6 to over 50, so karate really is for everyone regardless of age and ability.
