Shinkyu Shotokan, organizers of the beach training scheduled for Santa Cruz this Sunday, July 13th, have announced that unfortunately the event will have to be cancelled.

Area Shotokan black belts are invited to participate in our special Instructors’ Classes. Next session is Feb 8 (Saturday), 8:30-11:00 am at SVSK dojo in Redwood City. We focus on becoming better instructors; not simply training harder or learning more complex kata (which we may also do…).
We will have our annual “Shotokan Kata Review” in our Redwood City dojo on Saturday, January 11, 8-10 am. In this two hours, we will do at least 27 kata, twice each. Everyone who knows at least a few Shotokan kata is welcome to attend. Just $10 fee for non-members!
