Our Private Home Dojo

Karate is a discipline that requires commitment. Different than other activity or passtime. The skills of Karate must be developed gradually and each component builds off of the last. We believe that this commitment to Karate gives students a commitment to themselves and their physical and mental wellbeing. The level of physical fitness you attain will grow as you progress in your Karate. What you will learn in Karate will be with you for a life time!

Good attendance is the key to progress. Although once a week practice is better than no practice at all, it is recommended to train at least two or three times per week to gain the benefits that the Shuri Karate Dojo offers.

Please Note:

Our dojo does not accept all applications for membership. We are a traditional dojo where we follow a strict code of conduct and all applications are considered on merit. The dojo is no longer a commercial school and we teach from our home dojo. Therefore we only accept those students who are dedicated and committed to Karate training for the long term.

Note for experienced martial artists: This is a private dojo that is not open to visitors without first gaining permission to train. The dojo exists to take beginners from white belt onwards. It does not cater to experienced martial artists looking for one-off training or transferring from another style.
