Welcome to Karate West

The Northwest’s premier martial arts school offering exciting programs for children and adults.

Teaching at Karate West is not our job… it’s our passion.

Get started now
Karate West Training Centers are owned by Randy Holeman and Jan Stockton. Their first full-time training center opened in Issaquah in 1989. It had been their goal to build a martial arts school that offered not only an effective self-defense program for children and adults, but also a comprehensive program of personal growth and development. It would be the emphasis on teaching the life skills of leadership, integrity, goal setting, self-discipline and academic excellence, to name a few, that would cause the community to respond.

Our Facilities

We work hard to provide a great environment our students will love. Our beautiful facilities offer state of the art equipment, safety mats, and comfortable lobbies which are deep cleaned daily for your enjoyment. Karate West facilities are second to none.

Our Instructors

Our instructors love teaching kids and it shows! Each Karate West instructor goes through an intensive training course, and only the most enthusiastic, driven, caring black belt instructors will ever lead your child’s class. We take immense pride in our team. Teaching Karate is not our job… it’s our passion!

Our Members

Our school is filled with like-minded parents who want their children to learn values and life skills such as respect, honor, kindness and honesty. In karate, kids learn right from wrong; they learn how to set worthy goals, they gain confidence to stand up to peer pressure and make great, healthy choices in life.
