My son has attended for over 3 years. Each time he learns a new skill, participates in a tournament, or earns a new belt, you can see his confidence soar.
The owner and instructors are great with kids and adults. They reinforce good values and moral character. They also do special events like ninja nights and tournaments.
Awesome place and great rates
I can't say enough about how awesome National Kararte is and has done for my grandson.. Master David and Master Jim run a great program for both boys and girls. We love going and Zane can' t wait for class. I just love this place!
Best quality service in OKC!
National Karate & their instructors are the highest quality in the area!
Professional and fun.
I am pleased with my time so far at National Karate. I like the instructors especially David he seems to be very knowledgeable about bo staff techniques, I enjoy learning from him. I would like to see a smaller class for more one on one time so more knowledge can be absorbed. Perhaps a class strictly for beginners, white, gold and orange belts. Then a another class strictly for intermediate, green, blue and purple belts. Finally a class strictly for advanced students brown, red and black belts. This way students don't feel overwhelmed and lost at times and can have more focused attention as well as more space/room to practice. I look forward to continuing my training with this school.
The whole staff treats each student with such genuine care. Our entire karate experience has been such a relief and such an awesome relaxing & comfortable environment. Mr. David is AWESOME!!!!!!!

Life Changing Experience!
I've been taking Karate since October 2014 at this school founded by legendary hall of fame inductee Jim Butin. The Instructors are knowledgeable and patient and the best of the best.Since I have been taking the classes it has greatly enriched my quality of life.I started out with having my grandchildren take lessons.Then with some encouragement from Mr Butin I started taking the classes as well.And I have been amazed at the things I can do now with ease a little thing like climbing to the top of the stairs in a movie theater like it's nothing before I wouldn't even attempt that! I feel great and look forward to learning more with these wonderful instructors.
Improved a lot
I have been together with this place from the beginning that I am happy to see their teaching have improved, and the most important thing is all the instructors at this place are really good.
Helped my son zgwh
National Karate helped my son deal with everyday stress and our recent life change. He is better bc of jim, David and the whole staff that cares for zane. He has excelled and won a trophy every tournament, his self esteem is high and he has moral goals. :) you won't be dissapointed.
Affordable wonderful place! My 5 year old son goes here and they are awesome. The teacher is great with the kids and the owner is very trustworthy.
The instructors do an awesome job of caring for each student & bringing them to their total potential! My son has learned honesty in the heart, knowledge in the mind & strength in the body. He knows his phone number & his address & he is only 4 years old!
National Karate has a very knowledgeable staff that truly cares about the kids. Not only do the kids have fun they learn very valuable life lessons.
This is a great place for martial arts. Whether you are a beginner, expert or just looking for a good workout or self defense training, the instructors are more than happy to give you the instruction that you need. Class options are varied and several times to choose from that will work with your schedule.
My eldest son has been going to NKI for almost 4 years now. The instructors have helped him learn self control, responsibility, and respect. My youngest son has attended for a year and is already learning not only the athletics but the social skills needed to be a responsible citizen as well. The school has worked with us on payment options. They offer many classes a week and you are free to attend whichever is most convenient that week. My boys have been able to advance belts at a perfect pace. Doing your best and practice are expected. We love NKI! Karate a fun family endeavor!

National Karate offers something new and far superior service than the "Day care" option for working parents! We travel to your school in the Putnam City North Elementary School district and pick up your child. We bring him to our facility and he will participate in a martial arts class every day, covering stranger danger, bullies, and other self-defense issues, while working on the skills to advance in belt ranking toward a black belt goal! He then will advance to our study area where he can complete his homework or reading assignments monitored by our supervisor Mrs. Patty. Parents pick up their children by 6:00 pm and if Putnam City schools close we close as well. Payments can be made weekly, monthly or by the semester.
