We are now welcoming new members at our practice location at the Gold’s Gym on Ben White Boulevard! (between Randall’s and St. David’s South Austin Medical Center)
See our contact page to get in touch by phone or email with one of our senior members and to get more details on new member orientation. Please contact us in advance to let us know you will be visiting so we can provide instructions on where to find us inside the Gold’s Gym, and we want to be sure to recognize you and say hello.
Shotokan Karate of America loves new members! Whether you are looking for a great workout to get back in shape, a dynamic new exercise regimen as an alternative to the routine of traditional gym classes, or have a serious interest in self defense, come and visit our dojo. Please visit the main SKA website at www.ska.org under the “About” and “Join SKA” pages to learn more about Shotokan Karate of America.
At this time, members who wish to join the Austin SKA dojo must be at least 16 years of age. We do not have classes available for children, but they may be added to our schedule at some time in the future, contingent on the availability of a suitable practice space. We have a great arrangement worked out with the Ben White Gold’s Gym, the management and staff are very friendly and have welcomed our karate organization to their fine facility. Please contact Avery Saxe or Gary Stafford to get more details. Additional information will be provided about the mental commitments we ask new students to make, including regular practice participation for one full year, and other commitments to consider when making a decision to participate in SKA. We look forward to visiting with you.
