Shotokai, Karate

'Karate-do is a means of exploring the essence of being a human being; we must not degrade it to a mere fighting system.  The true practice of Karate-do should be about both the physical and spiritual aspects of who we are and provide a way for us to understand the relationship between ourselves and others.'

Shigeru Egami "The Heart of Karate-do"

UK Shotokaido, Karate-do .....

clubs offer expert tuition to both adults and children in the art of Karate.  Through the practice of Karate we embark on a journey of self discovery both physically and mentally as we explore our understanding of how we each function as individuals and how we interact with others.


The Karate that we teach is very closely linked to the Shotokan style, Shotokai was established after Shigeru Egami was tasked by Gichin Funkoshi, to explore and experiment with new ideas and discover what may be possible with Karate-Do.

UKS stays true to this today by exploring and experimenting with what we know constantly challenging ourselves and our art to increase our knowledge and understanding whilst staying true to our heritage and origins.


Shotokai Karate-do is a non competitive style of Karate which provides many benefits to its students, it is a powerful means of self defence, but it also offers us much more, it helps to develop and maintain out Mental Health, Physical Health, Fitness, flexibility, mental agility, and a general sense of well being.

UKS clubs offer a variety of opportunities for you to join and start  your journey, you can join us on our regular club nights in Wokingham. We offer all beginners a free taster session after which you can enroll on our beginners program.


All UKS clubs are led by passionate and experienced martial artists, they are as dedicated to exploring, understanding and continuing their own development as they are to passing that knowledge on to others.
