Master Joe Sirvent, 8th Degree Black Belt
I have been active in the
health & wellness industry for over 39 years.
I began my martial arts training in the early 1980's and quickly gravitated to Isshinryu Karate at the
Kenvil Karate Academy in New Jersey.
After several years I decided to train with
Renshi Joe Scianni at the Netcong Karate Academy, where I began my black belt training.
In early 2001 I opened
Lakeland Isshinryu Karate, LLC.
First located on Main Street in Boonton, we recently moved to a new first-floor facility on East Main Street in Denville.
I trained with Master Morgan Woods for many years.
I was recently accredited into the
World Karate Union Hall of Fame,
The Fellowship of Black Belts Hall of Fame,
The Society of Black Belts of America
Hall of Fame and The Philadelphia Historical
Martial Arts Society Hall of Fame,
and am a member of the
Isshinryu World Karate Association.
I look forward to sharing
what I have learned over the years with my students,
and seeing them progress and excel as they too
become lifelong students of the martial arts.
