About Our School
Bassai Karate Academy opened in 1986 under the direction of Sensei Bruce Barkalow. Since that time Sensei Jerry Bomay, his instructors, and staff have formed one of the most honored and respected studios in Western Michigan.
As a result of Bassai's dedication and commitment to first-class martial arts, the academy was appointed the position of "Directors of Kissaki-Kai Michigan" in 2000, by Sensei Vince Morris(7th Dan and head of Kissaki-Kai International.) Bassai Karate Academy has also been granted the honor of representing Team Caique in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for Western Michigan.
Throughout the school's existence Bassai has strived to provide quality martial arts to the Newaygo Community and beyond. We believe that every individual should be able to experience the positive, life-changing benefits that martial arts training has to offer.
We invite you to come in and experience for yourself the powerful growth that Bassai Karate Academy has to offer.
