A very apt quote from the Dalai Lama
“Share your knowledge. It is a way to achieve immortality”.

Osu,

Keep Calm and Carry On

Gichin Funakoshi the founder of Shotokan, penned 20 precepts as guiding principles for future karate generations to follow and #9 Karate is a life long pursuit drives us on to find ways to continue the journey in difficult circumstances.

Just like the Okinawans who trained in secret in the early formation days of karate, Worcester Shotokan Karate Club refuses to be beaten by the latest English lockdown.

The club reopened it’s virtual dojo on Monday 4th January.

When lockdown lifts the club will enjoy a seamless transition back to our real dojos.

The club regrets that we cannot accept new members at this time.

Ossu,

Happy Christmas

The club is now closed for our annual festive break.

The club will resume normal class schedules on Monday 4th January 2021 at St Martins Church Hall.

A huge thank you to all my students for supporting the club throughout an extremely volatile and difficult year.
 
2020 has without doubt been the most challenging year to run a karate club ever. Let’s look forward to better times in 2021.
 
Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year to you all
Enjoy the break and come back refreshed in 2021 to continue the journey.
 
Domo Arigato,
