Shotokan Karate - A sport that lasts all year!

"We provide the absolute best traditional Shotokan Karate instruction in North Louisiana. If you want the best, train with the best."


At Chris Smith Shotokan Karate, we follow the system set up in Japan when Shotokan was introduced. This system is based on a University degree which typically takes 3 to 4 years. So, it would typically take 3 to 4 years to earn the first black belt degree at Chris Smith Karate. Students must be 8 years of age to obtain the first degree black belt and it is known as a Junior Black Belt until they reach age 10 at which time it becomes the Full 1st Dan Black Belt. From that point on, there are age and time limits for testing for the subsequent Black Belt degrees.


Belt Tests are administered every 3 months and there is a 2 week makeup period for students who are unable to attend the test. Fees are determined by rank and age.

Classes to fit everyones needs. Private lessons with Sensei Chris Smith available too!
