How it startedAgoura Karate (previously known as The Way Institute of Martial Arts) was founded in 1992 by Master Conrad Ercolono. The concept of an “Institute of Martial Arts” perpetuates Master Ercolono’s personal philosophy.There are many great martial arts, one style cannot satisfy all needs in all situations. To become proficient a martial artist must practice diligently and increase his or her knowledge with an ever increasing sphere of influence.

Our instructors have over 20 years experience in Martial Arts training and instruction. Agoura Karate has helped hundreds of people gain proficiency in Martial Arts in a non-aggressive, positive environment.
