Southwest Chicago Shotokan is an affiliate of Shotokan Karate of America (SKA), a nonprofit organization teaching traditional karate in the United States since 1956.

Southwest Chicago Shotokan has been proudly serving the Southwest suburbs since 2007, and was recognized as SKA’s Central Region Dojo of the year in 2015.
Southwest Chicago Shotokan is based in the Southwest Suburbs of Chicago, and services Lockport, Orland Park, Joliet, Naperville, Romeoville, Downers Grove, Lemont, Bolingbrook, New Lenox, and Plainfield.
