So some of you got duped by this McDojo. I noticed you wrote "if you type in Karate America" your anti-Karate America webpage should come up. Nope. The first thing that comes up on Google if you type in "Karate America" is Shotokan Karate of America. The oldest Karate-do ogranization in the United States (started in 1955 by T. Ohshima, a senior student of Gichin Funakoshi- the founder of Shotokan). You all are being duped by people who use this as a liveihood. SKA (shotokan karate of america) is a non-profit and has hands-down some of the best karateka across the country and world. These MCDojos that hype up kids and adolescents that have no understanding of Martial Arts and budo ARE ALL PROFIT-DRIVEN. The owner on here said it himself, they are there to make money. So that being said, don't ask for crednetials, all that crap because they probably have a bunch of stuff to fool "Karate Moms". [continued below]....

..... Best advice is GET AWAY from these types of schools and find a great non-profit dojo such as Shotokan Karate of America. They operate in almost every state and the fees is $100 a year for SKA membership and $25 a month for local dojo dues. The only testing fee is Shodan exam and is $400. Pretty great savings compared to these idiotic MCDojos you ppl fall for. This is because SKA is non-profit and the instructors, shihan, and governing body do it as their passion, not for their money. They are almost all professionals in various fields and Karate is their passion, not their job. Get a life, "Karate America". You are a disgrace to Karate-do. - SKA member, 10/25/13
