About Karate West

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.

Outgrowing the original Issaquah facility, Karate West relocated to East Lake Sammamish in 1995 and quickly became one of the largest martial arts school in the country. A satellite school was opened on the South end of Mercer Island in August 2007. In 2014, Karate West expanded again relocating to 5828 221st Place SE in Issaquah which is now one of the largest and most up to date training facility in the country with over 9,000 square feet of expanded training floors and state of the art training equipment.
