Welcome to the Crawfordsville School of Karate

The Crawfordsville School of Karate and chief instructor Thomas Ward (7th Dan) provide instruction in Okinawan Shorin-Ryu karate and weapons with an emphasis on instilling the traditional values of kindness and personal responsibility as taught through the martial arts.


We offer training five days a week, with classes available on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings and most Saturday mornings. We also offer private lessons on request. Visit the Class Schedules page for a complete list of classes and times for the month.
