kazoku (家族、かぞく)
Explanation:
Family is 'kazoku' in Japanese.

Not exactly screaming originality, but you could try "Kazoku Karate Kurabu (Club)" (Family Karate Club).

Not sure whether this is the sort of thing you're after...

Note: 'Family' is also recognizable to most Japanese people, that is "famirii" (ファミリー), so Famirii Karate Kurabu might work (?)
