Bill Taylor’s Bushido School of Karate wants to extend a sincere thank you to the community of Murfreesboro and Rutherford County for voting us the #1 Martial Arts School by the Ruthies and Rutherford Parent! We are proud to have served Middle Tennessee with quality martial arts classes for over 35 years, and we are committed to providing the best services we possibly can to build our student’s confidence and help them become well-rounded individuals.

As the first and largest private martial arts facility in Murfreesboro, we offer karate and self-defense classes for youth and adults as well as cardio kickboxing classes. Whether it’s self-defense, self-discipline, self-confidence, focus, or just a highly-energized aerobic workout you’re looking for, martial arts will deliver. We pride ourselves on the successes of our students, instructors and the satisfaction of each person who trains or has a family member who trains with us here in Murfreesboro.

At the Bill Taylor’s Bushido School of Karate, we are a family. We want each person that comes through our door to feel welcome and a part of something bigger. We believe in community involvement and outreach. Sensei Taylor spends a lot of his time at schools around the community doing ‘bully buster’ classes, teaching self-defense classes for women and supporting local charities. Our Karate Studio is special and we hope that you’ll come by and say hello and let us show you how Martial Arts can help you or your child achieve success.

We love the community of Murfreesboro and Rutherford County, we are proud to call it home, and we are grateful for the continued support of our students, parents and families!

To celebrate this award we are offering FREE classes to new students until the end of the year with enrollment.
