Sensei Oscar Silvera is a great instructor. He has the gift for teaching and unique approach to all his students. If you are looking for a Karate school, look no more, this is the place to be..


I have trained in Shotokan Karate for several years and a few other martial arts. I have had some very good Senseis and some not so good. In all my years I have never been taught to such a degree of understanding as I am now receiving from Sensei Oscar Silvera..

My daughter and I train together here at Silverado Karate and really appreciate the personal attention given to each student. Sensei Oscar takes everyones development very seriously and personally... Sensei Oscar and his staff are very thorough and provide a wide range of both technical and practical training. I am very impressed with the individual attention Sensei provides to all of his students...
