The Eugene School of Karate was started in the fall of 1992 by Albert Roy. He trained and taught for his instructor Morris Mack, in Yakima, Washington for many years before moving to the Eugene-Springfield metroplex to continue his post-graduate work.
Albert holds a 5th dan black belt in Shudokan karate. He also has a master’s degree in teaching methodologies, a Bachelor of Arts in school health education and a Bachelor of Science in physical education. He has over 44 years experience training, teaching, coaching, competing and refereeing at both the local and international level. In addition, he and his staff are certified in first aid and CPR for your safety.
Eugene School Karate was birthed out of a desire to build a karate school built on values such as education, personal development, innovation, quality and passion. These guiding values have helped them to develop a successful and unique style of student-centered instruction where classes are taught in a respectful and caring matter.
Although the Eugene School of Karate is an independent business, it is affiliated with the American Shudokan Association. The ASA is a network of independent karate schools committed to the propagation of Shudokan Karate-do.
