Welcome to our dojo -  All welcome!

Shotokan Karate

Had its beginning  in a small Japanese island of Okinawa where it was passed down from generation to generation by word of mouth.

Gichin Funakoshi developed Shotokan Karate and refined the art into a formal syllabus that could be easily followed and subsequently taught in Japanese Universities

 

Shotokan is now one of the most popular styles of Karate.

Though regular training the following can be attained

Self-Defence, Relaxation, Fitness, Stamina, Flexibility, Satisfaction


The first lesson is free. Dojo fees are to be paid from the second lesson

Membership/insurance must be paid on the third lesson and renewed annually before expiry date

Members who do not possess a clean white well ironed gi (Karate suit) are

required to wear tracksuit bottoms and a t-shirt
