The Tulane Karate Club, founded in the mid-1960s by Takayuki Mikami, 9th Dan JKA, is an official Tulane  University club sport  that practices traditional JKA (Japan Karate Association)  Shotokan karate, one of the most popular and widely  practiced forms of karate today.  We are members of the  JKA AF  and the JKA.  The karate club is primarily here to serve Tulane students, but it is also open to the  faculty, staff, alumni, and the extended Tulane community.  The club trains year-round.

Everyone is welcome to stop by during our classes (FAQ).
