Build confidence and control who you are

Whether you are looking to improve your fitness level or learn self-defence, Joe Fournier’s Martial Arts can help you achieve your personal goals.

Our philosophy focuses on balancing mind and body in the pursuit of personal values and excellence. Perfection of one’s character is the ultimate goal.

Thousands of students have trained at the Hombu dojo and the program continues to expand. Sensei Fournier and his Sempais are extremely knowledgeable and provide excellent one-on-one and group instructions for all ages and skill level.

Along with Sempai McDonough and Sempai Clark, each Joe Fournier’s Martial Arts location creates a family environment where people of all ages, physical conditions, and martial arts experience can spend time together learning ancient and new techniques.


Winds blow, typhoons roar, worlds collide. Yet I remain undisturbed…nothing shakes me.

What We Offer

We offer traditional Karate training supported by healthy modern practices, in a non-competitive environment.

Every class brings new knowledge while building on previous lessons and provides a combination cardio-vascular, core strength, and full-body workout.

Our dojo provides a space where all train as equals: families, adults and youth.

We provide guidance that may influence other aspects of your life and provide support that allows you to train to your capacity.

Free Trial

Prospective students are encouraged to come in for a free trial class before joining. Meet the instructors, visit the facilities and see if the experience meets your expectations. Please view our schedules then contact us to book a time.
