Lakeland Karate, Denville, NJ. Affordable karate for all children an adults of all skill levels.

Lakeland Isshinryu Karate is a family-oriented, privately owned & run dojo, with a 2 to 1 instructor to student ratio.

Let's Start Your Martial Arts Journey Together

We pride ourselves on having an inclusive, supportive & nurturing environment where children & adults of all ages & skill levels can develop their martial arts skills at their own pace & with confidence.


Furthermore, we strive to instill in all of our students the positive aspects inherent in the martial arts: discipline, commitment, dedication, respect & hard work. 


We believe the martial arts can serve to strengthen a student's mind & spirit as well as their bodies, no matter what their age.


We're not a chain, franchise or a big corporation's idea of what a karate dojo should be.


We're not a "black belt mill". At Lakeland Isshinryu Karate you earn your next promotion, based on class attendance, dedication and exhibiting the proper skill level.


We are a business, but one that offers real value for your money. 


Considering the advanced rank of our Sensei and the other instructors we believe you'll find our rates a real value. We don't sell tickets to promotion night. And we don't try to charge you for every little extra. 


At Lakeland Isshinryu Karate we don't follow a marketing plan or a corporate guidebook. Our main concern is our students & developing in them a lifelong love of the positive aspects of the martial arts.

I look forward to seeing you and your family at Lakeland Karate and helping you begin your martial arts journey.


Sensei Joe Sirvent

8th Degree Black Belt
