About Us

Shotokan-logo3Rotherham JKA Karate Club practices ‘traditional’ Shotokan karate. All our instructors are volunteers and give up their personal and family time to pass on their knowledge. The club instructors as a minimum hold an enhanced CRB check, indemnity insurance and JKAE coaching qualification.

We welcome and cater for students from 5 years old and above. Our aim is to teach traditional karate and help students develop themselves and apply ‘principles’ to modern life (seek perfection of character, be sincere, put maximum effort into everything you do, respect others, develop self control).

We are proud to be affiliated to Japan Karate Association – England (www.jka-england.org) which is turn is affiliated to the Japan Karate Association – World Federation.
