About Us

Welcome to the Durango Karate Club

The Durango Karate Club trains in the Okinawan martial art of Shotokan Karate-do. 


Since 1993, the Durango Karate Club has been spreading knowledge, appreciation, and practice of the traditional martial arts to a broad audience. The DKC achieves this by offering affordable expert training with black belt instructors, and a cooperative classroom environment open to a range of ages and skill levels. 

The DKC works on a "club" model, rather than a "school." In the club format, all ages and skill levels train together, working individually and as a team on techniques (Kihon), routines (Kata), and fighting strategies (Kumite). We also engage in strength and flexibility training, self-defense applications, and an exploration of the martial arts through guest instructors. Students can also prepare for and participate in regional karate tournaments.

Lead instructor Sensei Josh Overbey has trained in a range of martial arts and instructed with the DKC since 2015.
