|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.|
|"Karate" (meaning "empty hand") is an unarmed combat system originating in Okinawa. Shotokan is the style of karate which comes from the school of Sensei Gichin Funakoshi, who brought it from Okinawa to Japan in 1922. Karate can help you:
All our classes are taught by fully qualified instructors.

Monday, May 6th is a Bank Holiday, so training at Kelsey Kerridge will not be at the normal 8.30 time. We have, however, booked the hall from 5-7pm for a special two hour session working on basics. The cost will be shared among those attending.
We apologise for the recent downtime on the website, which was caused by the need to sort out some security problems. These have all now been resolved successfully with the help of our web hosting company, and normal service is resumed.
There will be an extra hour's training on Monday 25th February from 9.30-10.30 at Kelsey Kerridge, when Sensei Claire will concentrate on Heian Nidan. The cost of hiring the hall will be shared between those attending.
The last class before Christmas will be on Thursday 20th December at Cambridge Regional College. The first class in the New Year will be on Thursday 3rd January, also at Cambridge Regional College, when we will expect to see you ready to work off all that turkey and Christmas pudding! Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
Congratulations to sensei Robert, who succeeded in passing his grading for his second dan in London on Saturday 24th November 2012.
At present there will be no training on Monday 1st October or Monday 8th October, as Kelsey Kerridge is in use for Freshers' events on both dates. We're trying to find alternative locations, but with no success so far. Any updates will be announced here.
