Agape Do Karate is an outreach ministry that serves the Lowcountry by providing authentic JKA style karate in a Christ centered environment. Our standards are high, but we offer an equal measure of support and encouragement to insure your personal goals are met.
We meet at Sunrise Presbyterian Church... Just a short drive over the IOP Connector and across Breeches Inlet onto Sullivan's Island. Training takes place in the fellowship hall overlooking the beach and the inter-coastal waterway. Agape Do Karate is the oldest and most authentic Shotokan karate program in the Lowcountry and we invite you to experience why we are called the Lowcountry's Dojo.
To seek the perfection of our character
To be faithful, sincere, truthful, and genuine
To endeavor, pursuing the will to stay strong and give our best
To respect others and always show courtesy
To refrain from violent behavior by controlling our emotions and avoiding foolhardiness
