About Plainfield Karate

Our History

Plainfield Karate was first born around 1968 by Joe Roupe and Larry Stout at the US 40 location in old Plainfield. Frank Love took the dojo over as a brown belt in 1972. In 1994 Frank's son Scott Love was handed the reins. In 2005 Anthony Hathaway came on board as an advisor.

In April 2011 the dojo moved to its present location inside The Sports Center on Gladden Rd. Plainfield.
