Otagai no Sonchō
respect each other
We are a community of like-minded karate-ka
who empathise with each other, work together towards a common goal and all individuals are supported to be the best they can be.
Study traditional karate or
join us at our sport karate sessions.
You will be supported by the wider community and have regular opportunities to be taught by some well known karate instructors at seminars and squad sessions.
We don't teach for the income, we teach for the outcome. Sonchō Karate Club is a not-for-profit club
where we invest back in the local community.

We train in The Main Hall with sprung wooden floor (we train barefoot).
Parents are more than welcome to watch or have a break next door (in the same building) in a family friendly Cafe Bar. Large free parking available on the site.
However, parents don't have to stay while we train, you can just drop your children off and then pick them up at the end of training.
And if that is not enough, across the road you'll find a supermarket if you need to do the shopping :-)
