“Sensei Joane Orbon is fantastic! An amazing coach with world class experience. My girls love her dojo and all the fantastic families we have become friends with. You could not find a better community for kids, drop in and see for yourself.”

“I have three daughters who are athletic and eager learners, but even after checking out several local martial art studios, we hadn’t found a place where I felt there was a good balance of discipline, technique, team building, and self-confidence/character development…until we found Sensei Joane Orbon. My girls have been training with her for about a year and a half (over Zoom, then outside, and now finally masked and in the dojo – yay!) and I can’t emphasize enough what a great experience it’s been.”

“I can’t say enough good things about my two sons’ experience at United Bay Area Karate Club. We knew we had found a special place from the very first day. The instructors are skilled and experienced in Karate and incredibly passionate about teaching and fostering positive growth in every child that walks through the door.”


Joe C.

Karate Dad

“I could not have been more excited to see this gem pop up in our neighborhood.  A very accomplished Sensei AND a traditional form of karate within a mile of our house! From the first time we stepped into the dojo, we felt a sense of family that I remember back in the day when I was into martial arts.  Everyone is very helpful, leads by example and wants to see their classmates make the improvements in both physical and mental control. “

Andrew A.

Karate Dad

“Sensei Joane takes pride in teaching her students not only Martial Arts as a sport but also the virtues that are cornerstone in developing kind, caring, strong, confident and healthy individuals. Through her guidance and with her world class experience, our daughter and others have a positive community where they can safely learn, grow and believe in how capable they are of achieving their goals.”
