Kodokan Boston teaches Goju Ryu Karate Do, Matayoshi Kobudo, and Feeding Crane Gong’fu. Each of these arts are taught separately, but all classes are open to all members. Membership is by invitation only, but we always welcome new members who share the commitment and enthusiasm we have for our practice. Please contact us if you are interested.

Please note we do not teach children; all members must be at least 18 years of age.
