Welcome to Lacy's Shotokan Karate

Traditional Japanese karate dojo in Texarkana teaching the importance of martial arts and self defense to ALL ages! 

About Us

Train Hard and Fight Smart

Learn powerful self defense techniques from a 3 time National Champion, 2 time World Martial Arts Hall of Fame inductee and U.S. Martial Arts Hall of Fame inductee! Master Wayland D. Lacy has been teaching karate in the Ark-La-Tex since 1973.

Fight Right

Our students learn karate as it was meant to be taught as a self-defense system. Through our program they learn self-control, self-confidence, higher self-esteem and respect.

The Lacy System

Lacy's Shotokan Karate teaches traditional techniques such as punches, kicks, knees and blocks, but we also incorporate takedowns and submissions to prepare our students for any situation.
