Harvard Shotokan Karate Club

Contact: Co-President Xialene Chang (xialenechang@college.harvard.edu) and Co-President: Ben LaFond (blafond@college.harvard.edu)

Overview: Our organization’s primary goal is to give Harvard affiliates the opportunity to train in traditional Shotokan Karate. That being said, we are directed by the interests of our members and the strengths of our instructors. Our training tends to devote more time to free sparring than would be done in a truly traditional JKA dojo.
