About

Shukokai Karate Bristol (SKB) train at two Bristol based dojos. Manor Hall and St Saviours Church hall. We have a number of experienced instructors. We are part of the SHITORYU SHUKOKAI UNION. Shito ryu karate, blends other martial arts, techniques and disciplines. We focus heavily on self defence and have a mix of abilities. All are welcome - beginners and advanced martial artists. Everyone trains together. Kata is a prominent feature of our class structure and grading syllabus. We practice kata along with basics (kihon) and kumite (Free Fighting). Technique is critical so we drill sequences and combinations until they become instinctive.

SHITO RYU SHUKOKAI UNION: With Sensei Masataka Ohshita 9th Dan and Sensei Chris Mileham 7th Dan, 

The journey to black belt is within reach for just about everyone with the right determination. At the dojo, we learn, practice and refine our art. Fitness is a result of this training along with a sense of achievement.

Results come with a little commitment from you and us at the club. So one day you wake up and realise just how much you know. And the journey continues beyond black belt...

A karate club for all abilities and all ages.

Shukokai Karate Bristol

We are a growing club and now have over 60 students training at our Bristol dojos. Our plan is to expand membership and increase the number of training nights. We currently train up to 5.5hours a week. (See timetable) 

We encourage families to train together and often split the classes so everyone can take something useful away with them.

We practice in the traditional way building on our basic technique,  kumite and kata amongst other disciplines. Self defence is a major part of each class.

Typically, we rehearse 'bunkai' -  (The techniques often hidden within our kata) - and then we adapt these techniques so they work effectively on the street.

At the club everyone looks after one another. We are friendly and make a point of welcoming new members without intimidation. Holding a mutual respect for our training partners. 

We are part o the SHITO RYU SHUKOKAI UNION attending courses and seminars worldwide.
