Karate. The Philosophical and Practical

Quality Karate Guidance in an enjoyable, relaxed, informal environment.

People Centric Karate

People are at the very centre of everything we teach and practice.

Valuing new members and supporting existing ones are essential elements of the club culture. Nothing is more important than helping people develop.

Our 100+ club members are drawn from all walks of life and offer a mixed range of ages and abilities. We all laugh a lot and enjoy each other's company; maybe that's the secret to why the club has grown so large over the past 25 years, with 5 venues in the Bristol and Bath area, and a thriving junior group.

I urge you not to be put off by ill-informed perceptions. We are NOT a combat sport and we are NOT about creating super athletes.

Karate can be a complex subject. All clubs and styles offer something a little different. Our approach is to encourage a relaxed and sensitive body enabling our students to use the attacker's energy to their advantage. We believe overt power and domination are not the most effective ways to deal with confrontation. It's all about remaining calm under pressure and using your body effectively.

If you want to experience life from the centre of your being, and develop inner peace and harmony, then you can. One rewarding and profound way to this enlightenment is through the study and practice of orthodox martial arts. For me, the key can be found in karate.

It will help you discover yourself.
