Welcome to the Intel Shotokan Karate Club

Founded in 1995, the Intel Karate Do Club seeks to provide all local Intel employees with the opportunity to train in the art of traditional Shotokan karate under the vigorous, high quality training methods of the JKA (Japan Karate Association). The instructors are Gyuszi Suto, a 3rd degree degree black belt, Ritchie Rice, a 3rd degree black belt, and John Gierach, a 2nd degree black belt, all of whom have trained for over 10 years. Our club is registered with both the AAKF (American Amateur Karate Federation) and JKA (Japan Karate Association US International), which enables us to participate in excellent regional training events such as seminars, belt testing, and competitions. The club has a very friendly atmosphere with very highly trained instructors, who are not only willing to take the time to teach but also share their valuable experiences over the years. Over twenty years after its founding, the dojo has several members (mainly Intel employees) who get together 3-5 times a week to train (see Training Times).
