We practice Shotokan karate in association with the Welsh Shotokan Karate Union (WSKU). Karate is not about wanting to fight, it's a Martial Art. Martial arts are great as spectator sports and a goodway to get fit, but they really come into their own when they are used in self-defence. Everyone is welcome to come and train no matter what age or level of skill, whether you're a beginner, intermediate or hold a black belt.
