The Kelvin Hall Karate class is suitable for both Adult and Children.
We keep our class sizes small with a high instructor to student ratio; With experienced instructors that take the time to listen and guide each student personally, you’ll never have to worry about being lost in the crowd. Our purpose at Shotokai Karate-do (method of Karate taught ) is to teach and lead every student, and challenge them to constantly push themselves to a higher level by consistently setting and achieving goals.
We strive to teach and uphold Shotokai Karate-do in accordance with its recognised historical background along with new and updated learning/teaching methods.
We require good character first – before membership is granted. We take our responsibility as Karate teachers very seriously; bad attitude, ego, and arrogance are unwelcome. We have a structured and flexible curriculum and syllabus that our certified and licensed instructors adhere to and implement Shotokai Karate-do.
All Instructors are experienced Adult black belts with Disclosure Scotland certification and First Aid Qualified.
Rank is earned, not given. There is no timeline given for automatic promotion. Train hard, get results. No rewards for mediocrity
Students are treated as family members, not simply customers. We believe in getting to know our students and help them be the very best in every endeavour.
Our purpose at Shotokai Karate-do is to teach and lead every student, and challenge them to constantly improve.
The practice adds balance and depth to our lives.
