Although I am neither a staff member nor enrolled student at Haggerty's I do know pretty much what there IS to know about the dojo having trained, and sometimes instructed, there informally for more than 30 years. \r

I had the pleasure of attending from 1988 to 1991. I enjoyed the atmosphere, the people, the instructors, and Sensei Haggerty's timeless wit, enthusiasm, and wisdom. I learned up to shodan rank from various other Black Belts at that time, and then went to privately earn my Sho-Dan from another individual. I am still practicing with my own style, and hold the memories I made at Haggerty's close to my heart.

This school is excellent. I have been a member there since 1981. I am proud to be associated with Haggerty's Martial Arts Center. It's history and influence are paralleled by few in the state and surpassed by none!

We drive all the way from Norman (32 miles round trip) 3 or more times a week to attend. I have two sons attending since 2007, one of whom has four years in Hung Gar King Fu, We looked all over OKC area and this was BY FAR the best martial arts school. The techniques were taught properly, not sloppy, and the belts are awarded because they are earned not because you pay for rank. People who teach and folks who attend are here for decades. This is a family not just a business. The style is a great mix of hard and soft as well as Ju Jitsu and there is weapons training for the more advanced. Sensai Haggerty and all of the others are not doing this for the money (and most reasonable, by the way) but because they are truly dedicated to passing on their knowledge.

This place seems like it has been around a long time, and that speaks alot for karate schools...I don't agree with the guy who said it was run down and dirty, true it's old but it's a karate school and when I was there it was clean. The instruction was excellent, there were about four black belts and again they were hard but not malicious in any way. If you want to learn the way it was meant to be taught this is the place. I think our country has taken martial arts and commercialized it the the point of almost worthlessness. This place reminds me of karate I knew in the mid seventies, taught by instructors right off the boat from Japan..

My son and I, are students of Haggerty?s Martial Arts Center and have been over a year.
I?ve experience positive change in mind, body, soul. Haggerty?s is a exquisite place to learn traditional Karate. It teaches values and self discipline that will enhance anybody life for the better. The Sensei?s there are very distinct in style and character. Each one teaches with passion and impeccable knowledge and skill that you will not find anywhere else. Students of all ranks here are respectful and helpful toward another. That is how it works! So, if you want to learn traditional Karate this is the place to be.

I have been attending Haggerty's MAC since I was 15 years old. Shortly after returning from iraq I obtained my black belt. I am very proud to have earned a black belt from a place that has had such an influence on the martial arts world. Haggerty's Karate is the real deal. It is not a place that is trying to mold its self to keep up with the fads;like MMA. It is a school with traditional values and traditional karate. I am honored to be an instructor at this school. Anybody saying that the black belts at this school are bullies is mistaken. I urge anybody that is contemplating to study karate to check it out. If you're Military, Police officer,we offer one of the most advanced edged weapons programs in exhistance. Haggerty's karate has some of the most experienced instructors around and we are willing to work with anybody.

Pros: The vast knowledge of the numerous instructors

.

I have been a martial artist for more than fifty years and have seen my share of martial arts schools over the years, and I must say that Haggerty's is the REAL DEAL! They have some of the finest instructors to be found ANYWHERE. They are lenient on younger and less experienced students until they find their footing then they wratchet up the disicpline to match the belt grade. Advanced students are very well disciplined and extremely proficient in their martial skills and ways. Many of the instructors there are seasoned martial artists with decades of instructional training and experience. Simply some of the finest, knowledgable and skilled martial artists to be found anywhere in the world.

Haggerty's Martial Arts Center has been at this location since 1975, showing that they have obviously been doing something "RIGHT" over the years or else they would have folded up like so many other karate schools have done and continue to do. Their very longevity shows that they are a quality school for any serious aspiring martial art student.

Another important aspect of the school apart from the mainstay traditional Shorikan Goju Ryu Karate, is the diversity of training availiable there, such as edged weapons training (sword & knife). Many law enforcement and military personel have been trained both there on site and at remote locations by their certified BladeMaster Instructors, which include Marines, Seals and other special forces both stateside and in the Middle East.

Pros: Excellent Martial Art School - Highly Knowledgeable Instructors.

Cons: None

As a student of Haggerty's Martial Arts Center since 1981 I can say that the training I have received there is top-notch. I have had occasion to study different styles of martial arts at other schools in my travels and am very familiar with dojo ettiquete and difficulty of training. The instructors at Haggerty's are extremely qualified and well behaved. I have never received any injury from any black belt in the school. I also know of no big-headed and rough black belts in the school. I activly study there three to four times per week and can highly recomend this school to anyone, of any level. As for the dojo being old and dirty, I don't need a pretty and polished place to sweat and learn. After studying there for several years I've NEVER gotten a spinter! Nor have I ever heard of anyone else getting one! Sounds like someone needs to go to the Bikini Bootcamp and leave the serious martial arts to others!

Pros: Excellent skills and values are taught.

Sad to see the shape of this school, Tom Haggerty barely has anything to do with this business at this point. Rates are reasonable, but you get what you pay for, facilities are dirty, floor is so bad that you will get splinters in your feet. There is one good instructor here, the rest are bully black belts with no control, and you can get hurt with that type of instruction. The kids classes are made up of kids who lack discipline, and again they do not exercise control which can get someone hurt. Don't want to bash this facility, but I must be honest that this is one that if you are looking to get into martial arts you may be disappointed.

Pros: the style of martial arts is better than most

Cons: old facility, ownership not involved anymore, undisciplined black belts that can cause injury
