Who are we?

We are

We are a group of dedicated practitioners of Shotokan Karate, many with senior grades and decades of experience of training, competing and teaching karate. We are an inclusive organisation that will not only support our karate development, but by working with and never against other associations and karateka, facilitate the sharing of knowledge, skills and experience for the benefit of others. We are building a safe, exciting and progressive place to train and compete, develop life skills, and grow as a group and as individuals. We will train, learn and develop together with our members and with the wider karate community.

  • develop our karateka of all capabilities at all levels
  • provide a rigorous and fair grading structure
  • be well led, with effective and transparent governance

  • work with agility and focus
