日本空手協会 大森道場


Japan Karate Association / Omori-Dojo

In 2008, karate trainees, family members established the JKA school in the city of Laredo, Texas; these karate members had previously trained with the full help and support of the JKA of San Antonio, TX and both under the International Traditional Karate Federation (ITKF) founded by Hidetaka Nishiyama Sensei, a former member of the JKA. After the death of Nishiyama Sensei in 2008, the ITKF went into a power struggle between the remaining senior instructors and the JKA of San Antonio, TX along with the JKA Laredo members decided to move on and in 2008, managed to align themselves with the Japan Karate Association/American Federation (JKA/AF) from New Orleans, Louisiana, founded by Takayuki Mikami Sensei. By 2009 the first Sho-dan (First degree black-belt) ranking was received by one of the members of the JKA Laredo. These legitimized and recognized the JKA school in Laredo as its own entity within the JKA/AF and the JKA Tokyo headquarters. The JKA Laredo members followed with their Dan rankings of their own under guidance of Takayuki Mikami Sensei from New Orleans, Louisiana. In 2017 the JKA Laredo gave an official name to the school known as Omori-Dojo (大森道場) and at the present day the JKA Omori-Dojo of Laredo has been teaching the Shotokan Karate-Do system and is consider to as the keepers of Karate's highest tradition in the city of Laredo,Texas.
