The Oregon Martial Arts Center of Gladstone is by far the closest dojo to where I moved. In fact, the association has several locations in Oregon and Southwest Washington. Free classes are offered every Sunday at the VA Hospital! However if you want to join, the dojo fees are $60/mo which is the highest! The instruction is superb. With the JKA/ITKF being the biggest and most authoritative associations for Shotokan Karate in the world!

Practices are held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday

WIKI SNAPSHOT OF ITKF
in 1968, there had been growing worldwide interest for the formation of an international Karate federation that would also oversee the presentation of international competitions... The ITKF wanted to make clear it was the governing body of traditional karate. In 1987, the IOC officially confirmed that the ITKF was the governing body for traditional karate.
