Welcome to our Karate Academy. I think the thing parents like most about our program is discipline. Especially “self-discipline". Because what we teach works it is important that students learn the responsibility that goes along with learning martial arts. Another aspect of our school is the safe learning environment. Since classes are age and ability specific everyone is working only with other student at the same level as themselves. Come join us. There are no contracts to sign and we offer a 30 day money back guarantee so you have no worries about your decision to join.

I clicked five stars and would click 10 out of 10 if ten were there! I have known Chris Pollman since we trained together under the instruction of Ichiro Takahata in the early 1970's. He has faithfully continued to teach the traditional style of Okinawan Goju-Ryu Shoreikan Karate (the style that is exemplified by "Mr. Miyagi" in the karate kid movies) that we learned from Takahata-Sensei (who in turn learned from Master Seikichi Toguchi, who himself was a senior student of Chojun Miyagi, the founder of Goju Ryu karate). Along with the traditional, you will also find real life self defense instruction as a routine part of the curriculum and can also get instruction in competitive full contact fighting if desired. Over the decades since Chris started the dojo in Weatherford, I have visited the school from time to time with acquaintances including high ranking karate Black Belts from several different styles, a former regional champion "tough man" competitor, and a former OSU wrestler all of whom were surprised and impressed by the level of instruction they found there (as I KNEW they would be when I took them). The staff there, for their part, took all of my "ringer" friends in stride like "a normal day at the dojo" (which did not surprise me either). Chris Pollman Karate is the sort of place where a unique and comprehensive traditional sytle of karate (striking, throws and joint-locks/submissions) may be learned in an environment designed to raise everyone up and improve the character of everyone who walks through the door. I would leave the smallest/frailest child under their care with no reservation whatsoever or would take the toughest person I know there, both with the certainty that they would benefit from the character-based instruction of the awesome instructional staff. - Kevin Lee

I work on the road. I'm a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu brown belt so I try to get in any kind of training I possibly can while on the road. This school is an absolute gem of a school in a small town in Oklahoma. The instructors are incredibly polished martial artists and the Sensei's knowledge is second to none. It took me watching one round of them sparring to see that they are incredibly proficient in their craft. I have seen very few martial art schools with their level of striking and it took no convincing for me to sign up. They displayed such proficiency and diversity in their head movement, footwork, and their combinations that it is incredibly obvious that they are knowledgeable in MANY art forms. I absolutely cannot wait to get back to Oklahoma to train with these guys! The hospitality I experienced is second to none and they absolutely made me feel at home as soon as I walked in. The entire school came to shake my hand and introduce themselves. Manners and character that any coach or Sensei would proud of. No ego, all humility and kindness. As a pure grappler I very much look forward to soaking up what they have to teach me and rounding off my own game. - Brady Baitz

My whole family for a number of years attended Chris Pollman Karate Academy. My daughters both earned their Junior Black Belt while attending. My wife and I both earned our first-degree Black Belt during our time there. It is a place that is devoted to proper techniques in a wide variety of areas. Sensei Pollman and Sensei Clayton both have a tremendous background in Martial Arts. They are family oriented but yet hold high expectations of all students from beginners to the more experienced students. The traditional parts of the GoJu-Ryu the Katas are taught. Ground fighting, weapons, mixed martial arts sparring, putting you in real world stressful situations involving people you don't know. It would be very difficult to find a Dojo that addressed so much. All of my family feels we are better off, and I especially feel better knowing my wife and daughters have had to stand toe to toe with someone and defend themselves multiple times while at Chris Pollman Karate Academy. I highly recommend it to all kids as well as their parents! It truly is a life changing experience! - S.Koper

Yes! I routinely recommend martial arts to my patients, especially the ones who don't like team sports or feel like they aren't "naturally athletic", or struggle with self-confidence, anxiety, or just "not fitting in". - Dr. Sarah Hartnett

The instructors at Chris Pollman Karate are excellent and provide a learner friendly environment suitable to male and female students who want to learn. If you want to experience a wide base of carefully planned instruction with qualified teachers and a strong traditional element, this is the place. The instructors are friendly, sensible, informed and take an active interest in each student. - Dan

I am a 5-2 Kickboxer and a 6-2 MMA fighter. Also, I have earned my 3rd degree black belt here. This is a great facility with great options and potential to grow as a fighter and person. This is a great family establishment. If they ever came across something they didn't know or had questions about they would, within a month, be off on a trip to a seminar to learn and study and bring back to the school together. Rising tide rises all ships. The Sensei has great knowledge and experience with karate and has many connections to promoters locally and across multiple states. Multiple times we trained with UFC fighters, Gracie jujitsu black belts, Machado jujitsu black belts, and a 7-time Champion American Kickboxer who trains his own champions who also help with training. All around a great place to learn and gain a new family. - G
