Traditional Karate

Samurai UK is now part of Shukokai World Karate Association (SWKA) Honbu Dojo Kobe, Japan. SWKA World Chief Instructor Sensei Kawata 9 th Dan Hanshi

Shukokai Karate For Self Defence.

Shukokai Karate is the ideal art for self defence. With its hard hitting, fast moving mixture of Shuri-te and Naha-te techniques, it caters for most eventualities.

Apart from the obvious style benefits, Samurai UK has a number of instructors who specialise in self defence, ladies self defence and personal protection programs. So if its sport karate or traditional values you require from your Karate. Look no further

The aim of our squad is to identify and train future Kumite and Kata champions, both at national and international level. Ultimately our goal is to produce future Olympiads and we have set in place a program to achieve this dream.
