Japan Karate of El Cajon

About Us

To begin with, this is a Japanese style of karate-do called Shito-ryu (pronounced " Shhh-toe REW", so you drop the "i" in Shito, and "ryu" is pronounced liked "DEW, with an R").  There are 4 major main central styles of karate-do:  Shotokan, Goju-ryu, Shito-ryu, and Wado-ryu.

I (Sensei Kevin) am a 4th Degree Black in Shito-ryu, awarded by Sensei Shimabukuro in 2011.  I am actively training at all times.  I at the Rec Centers for City of El Cajon, and operate a karate training hall ("dojo") at 586 Broadway, El Cajon, 92021.

I have taught children / kids since 1994 at several dojos, and have conducted after-school programs such as Jamacha Elementary School in South Bay, and three schools sites in Santee.
