Hillsboro Shotokan Karate

We are a karate school affiliated to Shotokan Karate-Do International Federation. We welcome individuals and families, and beginners to experts!

HSK was founded in 2006 by Sensei Guido Fischer, San Dan. He taught scores of students both at the Hillsboro and Bethany Athletic Club locations. As he chose to retire to Florida in 2017, he was happy that the dojo he started and his dedicated students will continue in very capable hands. Sensei Joseph Gasparakis, Yon Dan who has taught at several dojos in Europe before moving to the PNW, now runs

Operating as usual


Happy holidays to everyone! Many wishes for peace and balance to the world!

Congratulations to all the students who graded yesterday evening! We wish you success in your future endeavors! And a big THANK YOU to the hidden heroes: the parents of our students!


That feeling of accomplishment when you lock the dojo after training and realize the glass is full of steam! :-)

Great Saturday at the Oregon State Championship. This time we had a relatively smaller than usual team but we had a lot of fun!
Congratulations to everyone who participated with high standards in their attitude and congratulations to those who returned with a medal or two!
Great atmosphere, great comradeship and good fighting spirit.

Fantastic day at Saito Karate-Do Classic Tournament at the aviation museum in Evergreen this Saturday. Good sports karate quality, great atmosphere between judges, referees, competitors, coaches and spectators. All our competitors did great, showing excellent fighting spirit, respect to everyone and companionship between them. Very proud of everyone who completed! And 4 out of our 7 competitors went home with medals, not a surprise!


Great seminar with Toru Shimoji sensei, we really enjoyed it! And thank you to the Pacific North West Karate Association for inviting us!


It is with great sadness to let you know that Toshio Yamada sensei, 8th Dan SKIF passed away. He was born in Osaka, Japan in 1950, spent several years practicing karate in Takushoku University and moved in 1979 to Italy together with Masaru Miura sensei. He founded SKIF Greece in 1988.
His movement inside the dojo was extremely dynamic and powerful, his behavior outside of the dojo was extremely humble and quiet, a real inspiration for those who were lucky enough to meet him and train with him.
We will always remember you sensei!

It was two fantastic days full of karate! We had the pleasure to host Murakami shuseki shihan and other senior instructors from SKIF USA. We also connected with other dojos from the wider Portland and Hillsboro areas. We are feeling refreshed as a dojo and motivated even more for the perfection of our character through the perfection of our technique.

Great day yesterday at Saito Karate-Do Classic Tournament! Well organized and very dynamic and powerful karate. Everyone from our dojo conducted themselves with the right karate attitude and spirit, and everyone enjoyed the day. The seven medals (airplane shaped since the tournament was in McMinnville, OR aviation museum) out of our nine competitors was also a great outcome! We are of course getting back to the dojo tomorrow for training, we want more!!

Lisa was in the dojo yesterday training with us. She came on her crutches due to her injured ankle. She warmed up on a chair at the back of the dojo and trained the best she could. I call this dedication!

What is your excuse for not being there?


Now not only we have a dojo, but we have a sign at the door so that you can see us from far. What is your excuse not to come for training???


Congratulations to the karateka from Hillsboro Shotokan Karate Club for participating and coming back with medals from the West Coast Open championship! More importantly they come back more eager for more training in the art! Oss!

Training today with Sanders Neggo sensei and other karateka from Pacific North West Karate Association. Very interesting session on how our views differ, match and/or complement each other's in terms of kata perception, ex*****on and application. United we can only get new ideas and improve the art that we love and practice for so many years. Many more sessions like that will follow!
