GLK joining IFK

After a thorough and careful consideration, with the start of the 2019 year I have decided to return from IKO3 to IFK. On the same note I'd like to express gratitude to Shihan Mike Monaco the US IFK branch chief and to all IFK members for accepting our dojo to the organization. The decision was supported with a few strong arguments that I think will help us become better karatekas. Osu!

This is an excellent Kyokushin karate dojo with great facilities and equipment. Sensei Wojtek is a talented martial artist that does a great job combining traditional form (kata) with practical techniques and dynamic sparring. I would definitely recommend Great Lakes Kyokushin to anyone interested in practicing martial arts to get in shape and build confidence.

This is real karate, NO McDojo for ya!! One can learn effective self defense and better ones self spiritually and physically.
The instructor is really devoted to teaching the physical and metal elements of the art. My son loves the Kyokushin Karate, every session he learns something of value. I love it to; finally started losing lard and getting back into shape. Osu!!
