Our History:

Carrying on his family’s legacy, Josh Owens reopened Shorindokai Karate: Family Martial Arts Center in 2014 when he returned from the military.

Josh’s father founded Shorindokai but ultimately had to close the school due to his own health. Josh was inspired by his father and their shared passion for the integrity of martial arts. After coming back home, Josh knew that teaching was his passion and he wanted to revisit his roots and 37 years of martial arts training.
