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, Guido Fisher, a 3rd degree black belt, Virgina Ginny Ross, a 2nd degree black belt and Ritch Rice, 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 there valuable experiences over the years. With more than 17 years of its existence, the dojo has lot of members (mainly Intel employees) who get together 2-3 times a week to train together (see the Practice Times link on the left).
