Welcome to The Brighton Shotokan Karate Club

Covid 19

Following the COBRA meeting on Friday, more recent fast moving Government communications and advice from the England Karate Federation, the A.S.K. is suspending all close contact group activities WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT, that is to say there are to be no A.S.K. instructors or their students partaking in competitions/tournaments (including overseas), gradings or courses.

Further, all A.S.K. instructors are also advised, WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT to suspend all Karate classes/ club activities until further notice. It is anticipated that these restrictions will be in place until April and for at least the next fortnight to enable a better assessment of the virus’ spread.

I will keep you updated with information as I receive it. As you know, this is a fast moving and potentially dangerous situation and I feel that it is prudent to act now to ensure ourselves and our students’ maximum safety.

Welcome to The Brighton Shotokan Karate Club

Welcome to the official web site of the Brighton Shotokan Karate Club. The Club was first established in 1973 and is affiliated to the Academy of Shotokan Karate (ASK), of which Sensei Dave Hazard, 7th Dan, is the Chief Instructor. Over this period many British and International Kumite and Kata competitors and champions have been forged at the Brighton Club which was for many years the official Dojo of Sensei Hazard. However, the emphasis at Brighton is not on ‘sport’ Karate but the traditional study of the ‘three Ks’ – Kihon, Kata and Kumite.

Whether you are yearning to restart Karate after a career break or have had the inspiration to do something that will enhance your self esteem, fitness and well being, this is the first step down a well proven path. Young and the not so young, all are welcome. We cater to female, as well as male students and no-one is ever allowed to feel out of their depth.

Please feel free to come along to the dojo or contact me via [email protected]
