Karate at the Anaconda Karate Club is taught by Chris Eamon, with additional instruction provided by instructors Bill Calhoun, 2nd Degree Black Belt, and Alan Grantham, 2nd Degree Black Belt.

The Anaconda Karate Club teachs a style of karate that is relatively unique to the area. It was created in the 80s, in Great Falls, MT, and is a blend of Karate, Taekwondo, and Judo. This provides the opportunity for students to learn multiple different approachs, and not limiting them to a single style.

Currently, the karate classes at the Anaconda Karate Club are in the informal session, open to senior teen students and adults of all ranks. Classes are held at 4:30pm, Tuesday and Thrusday, in the big training room of Goosetown Racket and Health Club.

The goal of Karate is "The Harmonious Development and Eventual Perfection of Human Character"

The Five Tenets of Martial Artists are:

  1. Modesty
  2. Perseverance
  3. Self Control
  4. Indomitable Spirit
  5. Etiquette

The Anaconda Karate Club follows a traditional belt structure, beginning with white belt and progressing up to black belt. Each belt has a list of formal requirements that must be learned and demonstrated, as well as questions on the history and philosophy of karate.
