The Boston Karate Club (BKC) is composed of a group of dedicated individuals seeking a common goal: perfection of character through the hard physical training and mental discipline of Shotokan karate. Club members study this martial art together in a first-class training facility under the direction of world-class instructors.

Training facilities
BKC members train in a traditional dojo (training hall) with the finest suspended wooden floors, mirrors, punching boards and kicking bag. Clean, private changing rooms and showers are available for men and women.

Karate Style:
The BKC teaches Shotokan karate as taught by the Japan Karate Association (JKA) in Tokyo. This organization is dedicated to the practice of the true martial art of karate-do (the way of the empty hand), as founded in Japan in the early 1900s by the father of modern karate, Master Gichin Funakoshi.

BKC History:
The BKC was established in 1981 in Upham's Corner in Dorchester, and moved to Kenmore Square in 1987. Then in the summer of 2002, the BKC opened its doors at the beautiful Inner Space studio in Brookline Village. As one of the strongest JKA clubs in the United States, the BKC twice received the prestigious Nakayama Best Spirit Award.
