Welcome to
Bushiken Karate, Saint-Cyr Dojo

Pursuing the true meaning of the martial way!!!


Hundreds of families all over the Raleigh area are singing the praises of our programs and telling their friends and neighbors how much of a positive impact it’s having on their lives.

Bushiken Karate Saint-cyr Dojo has become a landmark of Raleigh martial arts!

Get started now and find out how you can be healthier, happier, and more confident with Bushiken Karate Saint-cyr Dojo training!

Physical and Mental Development

Our members tell us that they feel our school is more of an institution of self-improvement, physically and mentally, rather than “just” a gym or some “activity”.

I pride myself on helping our adult members safely build muscle, quickly burn fat, gain flexibility, and release stress in a FUN, positive, and injury-free environment! And for the children, parents all over the Raleigh area give my martial arts classes credit for increasing their child’s ability to focus, building their self-esteem, and igniting a passion for self improvement they never would have expected.

Much More than “Kicking & Punching”

Although many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the “tools” that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about “yourself”. When you train in our Raleigh martial arts program (which also serves Cary, Garner, Knightdale, Fuquay Varina, Apex), you take advantage of the best self-improvement system in the world.

Through the practice of physical self-defense skills, you will follow a blueprint for a successful life based on discipline, focus, and perseverance. Please take a few moments to browse this website, get familiar with us, then, take me up on my “No Strings Attached” offer, and see the benefits of my Raleigh martial arts program for yourself!

“This is not just for kids. It is a place for family. Sensei does an excellent job with my kids even the one that’s not taking karate yet but loves running around the dojo. I just started and I’m having a great time and getting an excellent workout while learning a skill! I highly recommend this dojo to all ages”


Yvette J- Parent of a student

“Going to this dojo has been such a positive experience for my son. It’s a positive learning environment that instills confidence and discipline while learning the art of karate. Everyone encourages each other and Sensei does a great job encouraging and teaching each child.”


Roger J- Parent of student

“Although we have only been there for short while. Since joining Saint-Cyr Dojo I have watched my little girl not only grow in the Martial arts but she he has become more confident as a person. The Sensei is patient and not only wants the kids to learn martial arts but life lessons as well. My daughter would go every day if she could I would recommend this place to anyone.”


Raul D- Parent of student

Saint-Cyr’s Dojo is not only a place to learn and study the Art of Self-Defense, it is also a class of positive encouragement that provides disciplinary growth. This positive environment has helped my granddaughter develop mentally and physically. My granddaughter has shown positive progress with her maturity, temperament and overall character. As a grandfather, this family like atmosphere gives me the sense of community unity that promotes the proverb “It takes an entire village to raise a child” I highly recommend this program.


Kisha J- Parent of student

Bushiken karate is great dojo. Not only is the focus on learning karate you are also taught self discipline, self respect, and respect for others. Once you join this dojo you are family. Everyone is welcomed



“I had a great time when I went! I have never done a day of martial arts but I felt very comfortable throughout this class! The instructor is easy to follow and work with you 1:1 if you get confused!  Would most definitely recommend this class!”



“Osu, I would like to recommend Sensei Marvin Saint-Cyr, and the Saint-Cyr Dojo everyone. Sensei Marvin is an accomplished fighter, a great Sensei, and a really spiritual and compassionate man. Sensei Marvin continues to embody the highest ideals of the true spirit of the Martial Arts I hope that all who read this can have the opportunity to train alongside this man who is continuing to help me to grow both in my life and my journey through the Martial Arts.”

Thank you to Sensei Marvin. OSU!!!



“This is an excellent place for the children to learn discipline, structure and enjoy time with their peers. The instructor shows patience and has lots of knowledge for this gift. 5 stars all the way!!! Try it, your children would live it.”



“Since introducing my son to karate with Sensei Marvin, he cannot wait to get on Saturdays. Sensei works great with the kids with keeping them engaged. He exudes positive energy and encourages all of his students. No matter how small their effort, he tells them they did a great job which instills confidence in them.

Working with children can be challenging however, this Sensei does a great job! I highly recommend children and adults to sign up to his class.”



“I enjoy training here. I highly recommend it.”
