Thanks to Sensei Bruce Kanegai, we have a piece of his Artwork to print on the products in our first Mumon Karate Store. 


Bruce created a Mumon Japanese Dragon, (日本の竜/龍, Nihon no ryū), a legendary mythical creature that represents strength, courage, and wealth. The dragon is ascending which is representative of our Karate journey.


20% of all proceeds will go to the 501c3 not-for-profit to support the mission of continued Karate education of our members.

By Invitation Only: 

Mumon Karate is pleased to offer an Advanced Practice seminar by Dr. Mark Weingarden to Sandan through Godan.

Mark will focus on learning Suri Ashi and 1 Soku / 2 Soku. Once these concepts of footwork are introduced, we will explore various ways to use the weighting of our feet for faster and more efficient continuous techniques.

Invitations will be sent directly via email.
