About Us

Japanese Karate Academy is a traditional Japanese Martial arts dojo established by John Hileman, a Firefighter and Paramedic in the Johnson County area.

My goal is to instill the spirit and honor of traditional budo

and encourage every student to not only exceed their expectations,

but mine as well. Our style is based on the techniques and training of

Shindo-Jinen Ryu, Shotokan, Jujitsu, and Aikido,

but with self-defense adapted

to the unfortunate reality of today's society.

Though our focus is on self-defense, we also devote significant

time to conditioning and sport competition.

What's Happening!


JKA Street Defense

We are starting a new program designed just for adults. 

We understand that some of you just don't have time for the traditional karate program.... the katas, the belt tests, the formality. 

That doesn't mean you still wouldn't love to get 

the training, the sparring, the conditioning, and the self-defense.  

This is just what you're looking for!!

Come give this a try, but be ready to work. 

Starting in March, we will have a set schedule. Aside from occasional vacations or sick days, this should be the class schedule from now on. 

Class Schedule

The more you sweat in training,

the less you bleed in combat!
