30th Annual ISKA Summer Camp
About Sensei Rick Hotton
Sensei Rick Hotton, 5th dan, is the founder of Sunday Morning Keiko and teaches at the West Wind Dojo in Sarasota, Florida.
Sensei Hotton’s philosophy on good Karate is consistent with the ISKA Senseis' teachings based on basic principles, biomechanics, and physics of total body action to generate maximum power and we feel that his teachings - physical, mental, and emotional - will greatly enhance your karate practice.
Sensei Hotton has been training for over 46 years and in 2014, upon the encouragement of his students, began creating videos of some of his teachings. He has since given seminars all over the world and many are featured on his YouTube Channel (link below) and in the member content section at www.sundaymorningkeiko.org.
Sensei Hotton was featured in the October 2015 Issue of Shotokan Karate Magazine. Check out images and snippets from the issue here.

FYI: Limited WiFi and Cell Reception at Camp Jones Gulch
For those that are used to being connected 24/7, we would like to inform you that there is limited cell reception at Camp Jones Gulch. We are told that there is intermittent Wifi signal, but I wouldn't count on that for any reliable service.
The nearest hotels are in Redwood City, near Hwy 84. There are also a select few Bed & Breakfast locations nearby. Bunkhouse accommodations are included in the camp fees, however, some individuals may wish to stay in a hotel or may be traveling in from out of town and wish to stay a little longer.
