DI KARATE DOJO CHANGES NAME
The long-standing karate dojo on Daniel Island has changed its name to Osupurē Karate.
Sensei Glenn Raus, a fourth-degree black belt in Wado Ryu Karate, opened the studio in 2003 in what was then the Field House Fitness Center, located on the second floor of 295 Seven Farms Drive. He moved the studio downstairs to its current location in July 2004.
Suite A was added to the footprint of the dojo in the summer of 2014.
In 2018, he opened a second location off of Clements Ferry to serve the needs of families attending Philip Simmons schools, located at 454-C Deanna Lane.
A resident of Daniel Island since 2007, he still owns and operates both studios.
Osupurē Karate (pronounced Osprey) offers traditional karate instruction through a multitude of programs designed for students age 3 and up.
