When people think about Peoria Karate, they think of the Academy of Okinawan Karate. The Director of the Academy of Okinawan Karate, Joseph Walker, took control of the Academy of Okinawan Karate in 1979. Since that time, we have grown to become the largest Peoria karate school. We have also become one of the most honored Karate schools in Peoria, Central Illinois, and the Midwest. The A.O.K. has won numerous awards, including being chosen one of the top 200 Martial Arts Schools in North America (at the time, there were 18,000 in the U.S. alone). In 1998, the A.O.K. opened its first satellite school in Eureka, Illinois; and in December of 2005, the A.O.K. opened its newest school in Morton, Illinois.
