The Shuri Karate Dojo is dedicated to the promotion, preservation and education of the martial arts and its traditions. We strive to be a reputable and respected dojo, dedicated to preserving the classical style of Karate founded on the small Japanese island of Okinawa. We try to study the "Koryu" (old ways) of Karate.

The Shuri Karate Dojo is affiliated with:-

Carter-sensei has affiliation to the Shuriway Karate and Kobudo Association, which started life as a website and information resource devoted to all things karate and kobudo, wishing to help provide information on traditional Japanese and Okinawan martial arts. In 2017, after many requests from around the world, the Shuriway Karate and Kobudo Association was established to promote legitimate traditionally-based martial arts from Japan and Okinawa. Our emphasis is not on a particular martial art style but the substance or the art, deepening our knowledge and understanding of the orginal methods for which the art was created, self-defense.
