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.

The focus at the dojo is never on competition, but on effort. Every student receives attention. This attitude transfers from the instructors to the students so that my Autistic child is clearly seen by all as an equal member of every class. The environment fostered in the dojo has allowed my child to thrive.
This is the real deal.

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.

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!!

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.

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