About Upstate Karate Family Martial Arts Center
Welcome to Ray Thompson's Upstate Karate Family Martial Arts Center, serving the Upstate since 1983 and home of Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson. We are dedicated to helping others develop confidence through self defense skills. Currently the United Martial Arts Association ranks us in the top 10 Martial Arts schools in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Great Britain. Our modern teaching techniques focus on the nature and structure of conflicts, and how we can resolve them peacefully. Safety is always our greatest concern. We have a genuine interest in our student's progress and development. Our staff is willing to go the extra mile for you!
