Japan Shotokan Karate-Do Federation

The Japan Shotokan Karate-Do Federation offers training in traditional Shotokan Karate-Do, which emphasizes strong stances and precise techniques. Practice consists of training in kihon (basics), kata (forms), and kumite (sparring). Kata are choreographed sequences of techniques against imaginary opponents. All sparring is non-contact or light contact.

The US branch of JSKF, based in the Washington state, is a non-profit organization which has dojos around the world.
The trainings are held by Toshiaki Namiki Sensei (9th dan, Chief Instructor of the JSKF), a world-class instructor who has taught thousands of students in Japan, Europe, and the United States.
