|At Cambridge Karate Club, we practise Shotokan Karate offering training to students of all ages and abilities. We are a fairly social bunch, and usually manage to do a few things together throughout the year. We are part of the Shotokan Karate Association and there are 4 gradings per year, along with an open day and some additional events for more advanced students.|
|Please see our Frequently Asked Questions page for more details, and our training page for our training locations. There are also some Google Calendars with all our events on them.|
