Dear beginner/martial artist/karate-ka,
Welcome to the Shuri Karate 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 our dojo.
There is much more to Karate than mere sport, fighting or competition. Karate is a life long study, ultimately learning about oneself 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 do not hesitate to contact me. And remember, to keep upto date on what's happening at our dojo follow us on social media below.

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.
