We teach traditional Shotokan karate to any who want to learn.
With regular karate training you will become more self confident, have greater self esteem, better concentration, flexibility and learn self defence - all as you improve your fitness. It has also been proven to enhance children’s concentration and discipline which has been seen to have a direct effect on school work. 
It is important to us, as a club, to maintain a high standard of discipline along with a friendly, family atmosphere. We believe that anyone has the ability to learn karate. You can start at any stage of your life, no matter your age, sex or fitness level. With the right spirit anyone can progress through regular training and the impact on your life can be astounding.
We have regular gradings to ensure that all our karate-ka (students) progress and reach the goals that they are set to achieve black belt excellence.

Traditional Shotokan Karate tuition for all
