Karate for Kids
Traditional Japanese karate in a safe and supportive environment
“Martial Arts School of the Year” – Bay Area Cities Karate & Kobudo Alliance (2017)
Sensei Keeling is extremely well connected within the martial arts community, resulting in frequent visits to the dojo by other prominent instructors, as well as large seminars with attendees from all over the world.
I’m very impressed with Sensei Keeling and his dojo. Sensei recognizes the importance of teaching the basics while maintaining the Shotokan karate traditions.
Head instructor Jon Keeling is clearly among the most knowledgeable practitioners and best overall instructors in the country. He is a clear and succinct communicator in English, has excellent technique and is very good at analyzing technical errors in his students.
This is the real deal.
You’ll be lucky if you could find another karate school that teaches all this stuff — I haven’t found another one yet. And yes, you’ll get an awesome workout!!
This is real JKA-style karate… You’ll learn karate by both tradition and understanding, i.e., you will be led to understand the reasoning behind the traditional art. You will have the same experience as training at the JKA Honbu Dojo in Tokyo.
Sensei Keeling and his students have made our entire family feel welcome every time we come to the dojo for private lessons, seminars and classes. Sensei’s extensive knowledge, exceptional teaching skills, extraordinary character, and remarkable patience are just a few of the reasons we feel at home in his dojo and his training; it’s a privilege knowing him.
The instruction and training are first-rate.
