Training courses

We teach a number of styles to suit both beginners and more advanced students

Wado-Ryu Japanese Karate with its origins lying in Okinawan Shuri-Te and the blending of Shindo Yoshin Ryu Jiu-Jitsu. The theory of Wado-Ryu centres around the scientific principles of speed, power and focus.

Goju-Ryu This style, taught to advanced grades only, is a combination of soft Chinese techniques and the hard Okinawan methods. It emphasises the interchange of fast and slow movements, tension and relaxation. Goju training develops good body conditioning and the kata develops stress tension/relaxation and abdominal breath control.

Traditional Okinawan Weaponry System of the Ryu Ryu Kobu Jutsu Hozon Shinko Kai. The original, authentic and practical weapons art of Sensei Motokatsu Inoue 10th Dan; Japans’ leading weapons expert and present Grand Master of the Koga Ninja-Ryu System.

Traditional Japanese fighting form utilising throws, joint locks, chokes and strikes. The techniques emphasise skill rather than force and selective application rather than strength. The moves are regarded as universally applicable and effective, regardless of the gender or build of the exponent.

Okinawan Karate with strong Chinese influence. A little known style outside of Okinawa. It was developed by Master Kanban Uechi from a blending of Naha-Te and Chinese Kempo (Pan Gai Noon); strong kata and body conditioning emphasise the style.

Discipline and etiquette are a strong part of our training programme for the junior student. The dragons section of our club provides first-class tuition in traditional Wado-Ryu Karate for children aged 4 to 14 years of age. These children only classes allow special needs for our younger members to be catered for. There will come a time when your children must stand alone against the world. By training in the principles of traditional karate, your child will develop a sense of confidence – and you a sense of security.
