About IMA Utah

International Martial Arts Association of Utah

We are proud to be part of the IMA Family, dedicated to teaching Shotokan Karate, a traditional Japanese Martial Art. IMA is a family oriented dojo offering classes to children and adults of all abilities and levels.

One master says, “Karate is based on attempts to avoid any trouble, so as not be hit by others and not to hit others.”
