Shotokan Karate Club

Shotokan karate is a traditional style karate, open to all-abilities. Come along and try it out!

The Edinburgh University Shotokan Karate Club is a student run club affiliated with the Japan Karate Association (JKA). We offer professional tuition in traditional Shotokan karate with several highly qualified senseis in a friendly and relaxed environment. Gearing our training towards beginners at the start of the year, we provide excellent training for all abilities - whether you want to become a blackbelt, compete in competitions (STKF/JKA, SKGB, WKF) or get flexible and fit. Gradings are also available at the club twice a year. Look out for the Shotokan tiger!


Please be aware, to join this club you must have purchased a Sport & Exercise Gym Membership, which is available HERE

We don't have anything planned right now but check back soon!

Should an individual require a refund – this can only be done by the club you have joined in cash or cheque (at their own discretion). The £5.50 Sports Union Membership cannot be refunded, and neither can the £1.75 transaction fee.
