Silicon Valley Shotokan Karate


Teaching traditional Shotokan Karate. Group and private lessons. Adult and kids classes. Also self-defense, teacher-training and more! Learn traditional Japanese karate in a safe and supportive environment. We offer both group and private lessons for kids, teens, and adults.

We train for excellence.

One goal of karate training is to put in maximum effort and experience the reward of improvement. We have spent decades understanding what works to help people excel at karate, and we enjoy sharing that in the dojo. If you put in the effort, we can guide you to world-class excellence.

We maintain extremely high standards. Those coming to our dojo from elsewhere are often surprised to see that our purple belts (intermediate level) are typically more knowledgeable and skilled than many black belts elsewhere.
