Welcome to the Canterbury Shotokan Karate Club

(Formally known as Canterbury Christ Church University Karate Club)

Karate is a Japanese martial art which uses kicks, punches and blocks. Shotokan is a style which emphasises low stances, long movements and the generation of great power.

Canterbury Shotokan Karate Club was founded in 1981 and is the oldest, continuously running club in the University. Affiliated to the Karate Union of Great Britain (KUGB), it is a non-profit making, members' club which practices traditional Shotokan Karate.

A typical session includes training for flexibility, training for general fitness, basic movements (kihon), patterns of defence against several opponents (kata) and some sparring (kumite).

Tuesdays and Thursdays 7 to 8.30

Due to the Covid-19 virus we are currently closed for training, as soon as we are made aware we can restart we will notify.
