We are pleased to announce that the Livingston Karate Competition Team is the United States Karate Alliance National Team Champion for 2022 and 2023. Our dojo has worked hard for the past 13 years to earn this distinction, pitting our members in open competition against the best martial arts competitors the United States has to offer.

Senseis Ray and Rebecca thank God for the ability and opportunities granted us, the competitors for their hard work and coachability, the families for their encouragement and facilitating rides to training and tournaments, our own instructor Sensei Joe Dupaquier for always being our inspiration and motivation, and the United States Karate Alliance for providing the greatest tournament circuit for our team to hone themselves against.

We look forward to continuing to provide the best possible martial arts education to our students, and to repeating this success next year to be the 2024 National Champions. GO LIVINGSTON KARATE!

Our Karate

Chittim/Jordan Korean Karate is an early, traditional system of Tae Kwon Do that includes a wide variety of kicks, punches, blocks, and short-range techniques all chosen for their practicality and effectiveness in combat. Our instructors are trained in Kodokan Judo allowing us to augment our stand-up technique with throws and grappling. Students also learn to use the bo (wooden staff,) and are offered training in a variety of other martial arts weapons.

Competition

Our dojo is proud to represent the United States Karate Alliance in competition. Since 1989, the Alliance has offered an open tournament circuit to the worldwide martial arts community, inviting all martial artists to compete against one-another regardless of their individual style.

The high level of competition provided by the Alliance has insured a tough circuit, and one in which Livingston Karate is proud to have been ranked in the top 5 every year for the past decade. This high competitive bar is the hallmark of Livingston Karate's success in training some of the world's best karate fighters and technicians.
