Karate for Kids
Traditional Japanese karate in a safe and supportive environment
Voted Best Martial Arts Activities in Redwood City for 2013!
By far the best dojo in the bay area, largely due to the outstanding head instructor Jon Keeling. He is very, very experienced, incredibly talented as a martial artist, and a highly effective teacher. He promotes both a high level of karate excellence and discipline, while also being very mindful of safety and individual physical limitations. This dojo is worth the drive from San Francisco.
The instruction and training are first-rate.
This is definitely the dojo that is worth your time and effort to travel to. Top notch instructors who can help you in all aspects.
I’m very impressed with Sensei Keeling and his dojo. Sensei recognizes the importance of teaching the basics while maintaining the Shotokan karate traditions.

When somebody asks me about the sport classes in Bay Area I always recommend you as the best teacher I ever knew.
I can finally say that I have found my home! Both the instructors and the other senior students are as good as it gets. I highly recommend it for anyone serious about JKA-style Shotokan karate.
I feel comfortable asking Sensei questions and I know he will give me honest answers.
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.
