Agape Do Karate is an outreach ministry that serves the Lowcountry by providing authentic Shotokan karate in a Christ centered environment. Our standards are high, but we offer an equal measure of support and encouragement to ensure your personal goals are met. ​


Be faithful


Respect others

Refrain from violent behavior

Seek perfection character 

Agape-Do Karate is quite different than any dojo we have encountered. As a military family we have participated in many dojos over the years.  One dojo in Colorado, two here in South Carolina and one in Japan. Agape-Do is most like what we experienced in Japan. It is thorough in its curriculum, exacting in its standards, full of care and concern for its students and faith permeates every component of dojo life. We travel a 50 minute commute one way several times a week because this dojo is worth it. The students earn their belts at Agape-Do and are not pushed through assembly line style just because there is a testing day.  Shihan truly wants the students to learn and grow in their karate.  He wants them to grow as a person and he wants them to grow in their faith and it shows. We couldn’t imagine attending any other dojo nor would we want to!

For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11
