We use Shotokai Karate as the foundation for teaching martial arts. This style comprises fluid movement and timing with maximum force applied at the point of contact. In addition we teach defence against weapons, as well as grappling and ground work. The aim is to provide a complete combative system. However, unlike other styles, we do not hold competitions. There are no rules in a real fight!

Karate practice can be divided into approximately four areas: -

1. Physical Training
2. Kihon (basic practice)
3. Kata (techniques and movements performed in a set sequence)
4. Kumite (free practice of techniques)
