Rhode Island Shotokan Karate-Do Honbu Dojo (RISK) offers Japanes style training in traditional Japanese Karate taught by Sensei Larry S.L. Martin. RISK is a family oriented dojo that offers serious students rigorous physical and mental training in the art of Karate. Emphasis is on the traditional aspects of Shotokan, NOT SPORT KARATE!

RISK is a non profit organization dedicated to the practice and promulgation of true Karate. RISK's objective is to supply members a means of developing character while being strengthened both physically and mentally. This goal is attained by adhering to the same high standards and principles set forth by Gichin Funakoshi.

RISK provides the Warwick Vets High School Shotokan Karate Club, Veazie St. School & Sophia School and the Cranston and Providence communitys. an affordable opportunity to train in Shotokan Karate. Sensei Larry S.L. Martin treats individuals as students, NOT LIKE customers. Training is demanding and promotions are earned, not given. The first month of training is a 6 week course to ensure that potential students have an opportunity to experience training in a traditional Dojo. RISK has contracts for 6 months because students may change their minds offten after several months of training and it is unfair to have them financially committed with an extended term contract. since prices have skyed rocketed, we are trying to keep the prices down a bit. to fet  each and everyone, young and old.


At R.I.Shotokan Karate-do Hombu Dojo our sole mission is to teach Children, Women, Men traditional Martial Arts at its best! teaching Shotokan Karate-do, Okinawan / Hawaiian ( Itosu Kai ) Kempo, Aikijujitsu and Kobudo ryu
