Shotokan has spread to become the most widely practised style of Karate throughout the world
Its structured training system creates self-discipline and improves behaviour in many aspects of peoples lives as well as developing fitness strength and suppleness
Last weekend we had our 2nd grading of the year. In total we had 52 candidates that successfully passed their examination under the watchful eye of Sensei Garry Harford 8th Dan. Well done everyone!
