The Carlisle Isshinryu Karate Club is dedicated to providing quality instruction to enable students to defend themselves in real life situations, and to foster the development of self discipline.

The club will communicate actively with the students and the public to foster an awareness of the Isshinryu style of the Martial Arts as an art form.

Martial arts instructor William Shank is currently a ninth level black belt in Isshinryu Karate. Sensei Shank began studying the martial arts in 1970 and teaching in 1972. Sensei Shank has been owner of and head instructor for the Carlisle Isshinryu Karate Club in Carlisle, PA for the last 40 years. The Dojo has a current enrollment of approximately 50 students. We also have other schools in PA, NJ, NY and VA

Sensei Shank received his first level black belt from Rich Garnish (second level black belt in Isshinryu karate). He has received other dan levels (Ni dan through Roku dan) from Sensei Harry Acklin (Shichi dan in the Isshinryu style). Sensei Shank has received his Nana dan, Hachi dan and Ku dan from Master George Iberl (Ju dan).
