About World Karate

In 1992, Master Doug Granzow had the idea that he would like to build the best martial arts school possible with the finest martial arts education available anywhere. His vision was to educate students not only how to defend themselves, but to better themselves in all facets of their lives, including better self-confidence, setting higher goals, contributing community service, increasing self-discipline, and improving self-esteem. Today’s World Karate is the culmination of over 23 years of striving to achieve those tenets. The walls of World Karate are adorned with letters of thanks from students and parents for achieving those lofty goals. Call today to schedule a free training session and you, too, can experience the World Karate Way of Life!
