Univ. of Oregon Shotokai Karate Club


The University of Oregon Karate-do Shotokai Club in Eugene, first began practicing in 2016.  Practices are twice a week for about an hour and a half, and are taught by 5th degree black belt Jeremy Crook.  Don't have any prior martial arts or karate experience?  Don't worry, in Shotokai all club members of all levels practice together to learn and grow from one another.  Don't own a karate uniform?  No problem!  Just wear a t-shirt and sweats (no shorts or jewelry please), bring a water bottle, and come join us for a safe, fun, and enlightening workout!
