About

We are KYOSHINKAN, a traditional style dojo now located in Cartersville, Georgia under the direction of Sensei Lenny Jordan. Sensei Jordan founded KYOSHINKAN in Virginia in 1982.  KYOSHINKAN moved to Georgia in 2001.

Sensei Jordan began his training under Hanshi James Herndon, he also trained with Soke Shogo Kuniba and Shihan Tsutomu Watanabe.

At KYOSHINKAN we teach the karate of Hanshi Herndon and Shihan Watanabe with many values learned from Shogo Kuniba.

In 2014, Sensei Jordan affiliated KYOSHINKAN/KAI with the International Karate and Kobudo Union (IKKU). The IKKU is under the direction of Soke Joseph Ruiz.

Under the KYOSHINKAI banner, there are schools located in Florida, Virginia and West Virginia.
