Welcome to AFR Christian Karate, dojo of Shihan Cris Kolb. Our Martial Arts training is authentic karate, just as it is taught in Japan, where karate was invented. "Karate" is actually two Japanese words: "kara", which means "empty", and "teh", which means "hand". Our style is called Fushin Ryu and it is a traditional Japanese style. Shihan Cris Kolb and Sensei LeAnne Kolb trained directly under Saiko Shihan (Grand Master) Yoshio Sugihara. Our dojo is the home of the finest Martial Arts training in Northeast Florida. Here we don't simply teach karate, we develop Christian martial artists who are physically, mentally and spiritually prepared.
