Our Dojo is open to students, faculty and staff, as well as the community at large. Classes are open to both beginners and those with previous experience in Shotokan karate or other martial arts. The training fee at the JKA of CA SF City Center dojo is $80.00 per person per month or a drop-in fee of $20/class for short term visitors.

Dress in comfortable workout clothes or wear your gi (uniform) if you have one. At the beginning of each term, there is an introductory class. The class provides an overview of Shotokan Karate training. While these are ideal times to join, new students are accepted at any time. When you arrive, introduce yourself to one of the black belts. You may also send an e-mail to Merv Dixon or Bill Maske to let us know you're coming or to ask any questions you may have.
