Creativity is how we make new things to share with the people around us! There are many forms of creativity. Art is creativity. Scientific inventions are creativity. This month at Burch’s Karate our students will learn that when using imagination, we can come up with many things to create! #LessonOfTheMonth #February2022 #karatebill #kidskaratephoenix #karatephoenix

We will have classes today at Burch's Karate. Be motivated by this courageous leader to always do what you believe is right not just popular or easy.

Who saw season 4 of Cobra Kai?? That was my New Years Eve party....wooo hooo


It’s a New Year and many of us make resolutions to better ourselves. Our word of the month is Motivation. Stay motivated and see your life change in positive ways. Remember a Black Belt is just a White belt that stayed motivated and NEVER QUIT!


This month at Burch’s Karate our students are learning about Motivation. Every January, many people like to set challenges for themselves in the year ahead. It’s easy to say what your goals are, but you need motivation to keep following them throughout the year! #LessonOfTheMonth #January2022 #karatebill #karatephoenix #martialartsphoenix #kidskaratephoenix

Burch’s Karate

Welcome to Burch’s Karate!

In 1986, Bill Burch established Burch's Karate in the town of Minooka, Illinois. After spending to many cold winters in the Chicago area, he and his wife, Tammy, decided to sell everything and venture off into the sunny state of Arizona. In July of 2000, they relocated and reopened Burch's Karate in Scottsdale. In August of 2010, they relocated to their current location in Phoenix.

Sensei Burch has Black Belts under three of the most famous Martial Arts Masters in the world: George Dillman, Remy Presas and Wally Jay. Sensei is an expert and Grandmaster (8th degree Black Belt) in the art of Kyusho Jitsu (one second fighting). Sensei teaches seminars all over the country as well as Europe. Black Belts and Masters from around the globe have studied under Sensei Burch.

Sensei Burch is featured in all five of George Dillman's books:
​Kyusho-Jitsu: The Dillman Method of Pressure Point Fighting
Advanced Pressure Point Fighting of Ryukyu Kempo
Tuité Advanced Pressure Point Grappling
Pressure point Karate Made Easy: A Guide to the Dillman Pressure Point Method for Beginners and Younger Martial Artists.
