We teach the Wado Ryu and Shotokan styles of karate.


This was the instructor's first fighting style, and he was inducted into it in 1989. This was with a formal club, though he had been training on his own in the discipline since 1986.


Karate is a great style for discipline, fitness, stamina and strength. It places a large emphasis on forms, or kata, which are intended to maximise the karateka's force against an imaginary opponent.


There is a lot of discussion, especially on-line, of the merits of Karate versus other styles as a fighting discipline. As ever, it is more down to the student and his / her ability, rather than any problem with the system in itself.


Following the attainment of fourth dan in Karate in 2007, the instructor was awarded his 5th Dan in 2018.
