Welcome to HARBOROUGH SHOTOKAN KARATE CLUB and NORTHAMPTONSHIRE KARATE CLUB, the first JKA Karate ClubS in Harborough and Northampton.

Karate is more than just a sport, it’s a martial art. Going to the gym will keep you fit but won’t teach you a skill. Karate will both keep you fit and teach you self defence. It will also improve your confidence and assertiveness.

Shotokan is a karate style. This is by far the most widespread karate style, about 80% of karate practitioners train in Shotokan.

We represent the JKA (Japan Karate Association) in the Midlands. The JKA is the oldest and biggest karate organisation in the world. Our instructor has Japanese qualifications and teaches traditional karate the Japanese way.

Do you want to train real Japanese Karate? Should you go to Japan or can Japan come to you?

If you’re serious about learning karate and are willing to train hard you’ve come to the right place.
