Please note we are currently teaching from our private home dojo (see note below).
Classes are by appointment only.
Our dojo follows the older Okinawan tradition of training from a small home based dojo and can be challenging. What we lack in size, we make up in quality and the sincerity of our training. Karate is a discipline that requires commitment. Different than other activity or passtimes. 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 training, and 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 Dojo offers.

We do not accept all applications for membership. Our dojo follows the older Okinawan tradition of training from a small home based dojo. We have a selective student intake on a periodic basis. Traditional training is typically limited to small, dedicated groups of students, who are seeking to achieve a high level of disciplined, skills and values. Therefore preserving the culture and foundation of our art.
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.
