Colchester Shotokan Karate Club
Affiliated to the Toyakwai Karate Association
Thank you for taking the time to visit our web site, we hope you find the content informative and useful.
Colchester Shotokan Karate Club was formed in 1983 and is one of the longest-standing clubs in the area. As our name suggests, the style of karate we practice is called Shotokan, which is the most widely practiced style of karate worldwide. We are affiliated to the Toyakwai Karate Association and the English Karate Federation.
The Club is run by experienced 4th Dan instructors.
We are privileged to have regular visits from Sensei ODYSSEAS CHRISTOU [TONE] who is a 7th Dan from the Traditional Shotokan Schools Of Karate, (T.S.S.K.). The knowledge passed on by Sensei Tone is of great benefit not only to our students but is essential in the continued development of our own 4th Dan Instructors.
Whilst we are a family oriented club, and have many parents and children training alongside each other, we consider the standard of karate we practice to be high, evidenced by the track record of our members in Black Belt gradings and in competitions.
We are a not-for-profit club, any income received remains within the Club for the benefit of its members, including the provision of subsidised courses with guest Instructors. None of our instructors take any payment from the club, our fees are therefore very reasonable, lessons can be paid for individually or on a monthly basis.
As a family orientated club, we welcome adults and children (from 6 years of age).
If you are new to karate or, if you have some experience and are just looking for somewhere to train, check out the "About Us" section of the website.
If you would like to try Karate for the first time, or are looking for a new club in the Colchester area.
Why not take advantage of our free trial lesson offer or one of our "Beginner Packages".
