Marking two decades of Shotokan Karate Ryu with a

festive celebration


On Sunday 10th December, over 130 students and guests joined together to celebrate a 20 year milestone for the Shotokan Karate Ryu

Slide Show

As is customary, each year we have a ‘Christmas Slide Show’  to commemorate the success of the club.  

This year, we thought we would include it on our website. 



Lessons recommence in the New Year from

Tuesday 2nd January inclusive.
