Welcome

Juneau Shotokan

Shotokan karate is a traditional style of Japanese karate that was founded by Master Gichin Funakoshi (pictured on the right). Karate is a martial art that focuses on self-defense by teaching blocking, striking, punching, kicking, throwing, and joint locks using the weapons of the body. The ultimate aim of practicing Shotokan karate is not to win or lose a fight, but to seek the perfection of one's character through consistent training.


The Juneau Shotokan Karate Club is a non-profit group under the direction of Sensei Doug Murray.  We meet three times a week to train in basic moves, kata, kumite and self defense.  Juneau Shotokan Karate adheres to the same high standards and principles set forth by Master Gichin Funakoshi in the dojo kun, which is still repeated at the end of every class, and the niju kun, which explains in more detail the guiding principles of Master Funakoshi's philosophy: Character, Sincerity, Effort, Etiquette, and Self-Control.


Juneau Shotokan Karate is affiliated with the International Shotokan Karate Federation (ISKF). ISKF is a world-wide organization composed of over 70 member countries that was founded in 1977. Our local instructors are all members of ISKF who volunteer their time to teach the students. ​ We are also part of the Alaska Region Shotokan group which allows us access to Regional Competitions, Karate Camps and extended testing and training opportunities.
