The Enso Karate Experience
As we celebrate our 20th year as a dojo, Enso Karate is proud to be a leader in martial arts instruction in the Chicago area.
We train in Shotokan Karate, and welcome new or returning youth, adults, and families to join our dojo to learn this martial arts discipline. Leading the dojo are Sensei Jay Nacu and Sensei Denise Nacu who have over 25 years of experience offering high-quality karate instruction. They are both lifelong educators and karateka for life who love to share their karate knowledge and bring out the best in each individual through karate-do.
Enso students and their families have a strong sense of community because that’s what we are — a community. Instructors, students, and parents form deep connections and lasting friendships.
