Who we are:

Welcome to Shinsei Martial Arts & Fitness Center! We are an exciting Christian alternative teaching traditional Karate in St. Augustine, FL, and offering the amazing physical and character building benefits of martial arts instruction in a safe, dynamic learning environment centered on the Truths from God’s Word in the Bible. Using the Fruit of the Spirit and traditional Japanese martial arts styles we help students realize the value in becoming a stand up citizen for God and our society.


So how can the Bible be the center of a martial arts program? Well, as a martial arts program, we spend a significant amount of time training in the physical skills for a self-defense scenario that we hope we will never face. But more importantly, as a Christian martial arts program we train using God’s Word to prepare for the spiritual battles that we know we’re going to face every single day. Sounds great doesn’t it? (Well it really is!)

At Shinsei Martial Arts we practice Karate-do, an effective and traditional martial arts style. Our goal is to help our students become Christian Black Belts who will be outstanding members and leaders in their families, their local church, and the community. And it’s a real blessing to say that we’ve seen that happen in lots of lives across a lot of years!
