WELCOME to Pratt's Karate Club where family comes first. Pratt's Karate Club was founded in 1979 by Master Leonard Pratt. Pratt's Karate Club also known as PKC KARATE is a community martial art program for both children and adults. We teach Moo Duk Kwan Tae Kwon Do along with many other back grounds such as Kickboxing, Judo, Hapkido, Reality based self-defense, Weapons and Sport Karate. Here at PKC KARATE we believe that in order to be well rounded in the Martial Arts and in life we must learn to keep an open mind.
Our Mission is to keep family and community involved with healthy activities through the path of Martial Arts.
On November 3, 2019 PKC President Jason Pratt was invited to test at the United States Taekwondo Association World Seminar held in Warwick, NY honoring the late great Grandmaster Richard Chun. Jason Pratt tested and was promoted to 7th Dan in Moo Duk Kwan Taekwondo receiving the title of Grandmaster and Kwanjangnim conducted by the USTA president Grandmaster Doug Cook. A rare black belt test board consisting that day of a Richard Chun Master, Kim Gyling of Finland, one of Grandmaster's first students 8th Dan Pablo Alejandro and Kukkiwon 9th Dan Grandmaster Kyu-Hyun Lee. Grandmaster Richard Chun was Grandmaster Jason Pratt's mentor and Grandmaster since 2011 when he seeked him for direction in the path of Taekwondo. Since then PKC KARATE is very much apart of the USTA and family led by the new leadership of Grandmaster Doug Cook appointed Grandmaster Chun before his passing on November 15th 2017.
On October 19, 2019 PKC President Jason Pratt and Master Eddie Diaz of Diaz Martial Arts was invited to test directly in front of Bill "Superfoot" Wallace in Houston, TX where Grandmaster Pratt was promted to 7th Dan in the Bill "Superfoot" System. This was a true honor as Bill Wallace was the inspiration of the PKC KARATE founder Leonard Pratt to start martial arts in the early 1970's. Much respect to 8th Dan Grandmaster Bill Gray of the American Society of Karate for the Superfoot system, mentor and friendship to create a great relationship between PKC KARATE and the legend Bill Wallace.
