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.

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!!

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.

I feel comfortable asking Sensei questions and I know he will give me honest answers.

I spent a lot of time touring dojos in the Palo Alto area, and this is by far the best. Both of the instructors… trained for a number of years at the main JKA dojo in Tokyo… and this direct connection to the essence of Shotokan is obvious. The classes are very technical, nothing is left unexplained and there is zero BS.

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.
Dojo member (instructor with over 25 years' experience)San Francisco
I’m very impressed with Sensei Keeling and his dojo. Sensei recognizes the importance of teaching the basics while maintaining the Shotokan karate traditions.
