For more than 30 years, the Japan Karate Association of Boston has promoted traditional Shotokan Karate. We are affiliated with the JKA World Federation and Shotokan Karate-Do International (see below).
About JKA and Shotokan Karate-Do International
The Japan Karate Association, headquartered in Tokyo, was founded in 1948 by the students of Master Funakoshi, the father of today's karate. The JKA now operates worldwide to maintain the high standards of instruction and training established by Master Funakoshi and to encourage the growth and development of karate.
Shotokan Karate-Do International, operated out of New York City, is directed by Sensei Masataka Mori, 9th Dan (9th degree black belt). It serves as the headquarters for all JKA clubs in the Pan-American region. Sensei Mori is also the vice-chairman of JKA World Federation. For SKDI dojos and contact informaton, please see our list of dojos within the USA and outside the USA.
JKA Boston maintains the same style of traditional Japanese karate taught at JKA dojos around the world. JKA Boston participates in regional, national, and world tournaments, as well as Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter training camps, which are hosted by JKA and its affiliates.
Sensei Toryu is a two-time ITKF national kumite champion (1984 & 1987). In 2011 and 2014, he was a coach for the World Cup U.S. Team.
Eiji Toryu, 6th Dan
JKA Boston's chief instructor, Eiji Toryu, is 6th Dan (6th degree black belt) and an internationally recognized and certified instructor for the Japan Karate Association and Shotokan Karate-Do International. With over 40 years of training in Japanese martial arts, Sensei Toryu brings to the club the traditions of karate discipline and honor.
Sensei Toryu was born on Shikoku, the smallest of Japan's four main islands. His first martial art was Judo, in which he has a first degree black belt. He came to the United States after graduating from Reitaku University, and has been teaching at JKA Boston since 1981.
