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.

When somebody asks me about the sport classes in Bay Area I always recommend you as the best teacher I ever knew.
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.
