Looking for more than just the traditional in martial arts training? Rising Sun Karate is a local karate studio offering a wide range of benefits to people of all ages. Our goal is to offer aspiring students the highest quality in training to enhance your skills and improve your health.

We have come a long way since we first opened our karate studio back in 1995 to become one of the most respected schools in Scottsdale. Our Martial Arts Program has a lot to offer children and adults alike, in developing focus, self discipline, providing an outlet to control aggression, a positive environment, and to provide a fun activity for the entire family.

Rising Sun Karate has been awarded ‘Best Martial Arts Training in Scottsdale’ since 2012 by the Scottsdale Awards Program. Rising Sun Karate has also received the Small Business and Excellence Award in 2017. 

In addition to martial arts, our students will learn leadership and character building skills such as listening, respect, concentration, honor, courage, and sportsmanship. Classes are taught by our owner, Tim VanDenover, in a family-friendly, fun environment and we welcome all age ranges.

Our karate studio has produced a number of young athletes who have achieved recognition in numerous local and national championships.
