Welcome to our web-site. Our club – 25 years in existance – is an active member of GKI and is accredited by MASA. We hope you find these pages interesting and useful. Let us know.
Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate is a complete system, ideal for self-defense, sport, fitness and health with roots in the Chinese White Crane art.
If karate is completely new to you, then our advice is to visit a few clubs to get a feel for how they operate. We are always happy to have visitors and new members. Just come to the club and make yourself known. Our students strive for the highest personal standard through commitment, strenuous effort and an enquiring attitude by learning in a safe, disciplined and friendly way.
Classes are held on Mondays and Wednesdays (except August and public holidays) at Woosehill Hall, (By Morrisons), Wokingham, UK. Childrens classes are from 6:30 to 7:30 and adults classes are from 7:40 to 9:10, e-mail for more details.
Our instructors hold 7th and 6th Dan have trained and competed round the world and hold English Karate Governing Body coaching qualifications. Further details are on the Instructors page.
In our technical pages we try to share information not available else where on the web or in books, including a range of interesting kumite techniques and Bunkai we have developed.
