Dear beginner/martial artist/karate-ka,

Welcome to the Shuri Dojo website. I hope you find your visit to this website informative and interesting enough for you to return.

My purpose for building this website has been to promote our dojo, our style and ideals and to help the beginning Karate practitioner find material of interest, that may help you decide to start your martial arts journey with us at the Shuri Dojo.

There is much more to Karate than mere sport, fighting or competition. Karate is a life long study, ultimately learning and testing yourself, through the rigors of constant training, challenge, success and failures. Whether this is your ultimate aim of studying Karate, is of course personal choice. Karate can be many things to many people.

Through this website I hope you are able to find the information you are looking for.

If you require any further information please contact me...... And remember, to keep upto date on what's happening at the Shuri Dojo follow us on our social media channels below.

Thank you.

Adam Carter

Please Note:

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.
