Whether you are considering taking up Shotokan Karate for the first time or have studied karate previously then
you are most welcome to join these sessions.
We aim to provide a high standard of instruction in Traditional Shotokan Karate based on the teachings of
Soke Hirokazu Kanazawa and
Hanshi Mick Randall.
The training sessions are suitable for men, women and young people alike at all levels of fitness.
Studying Karate is not confined to learning the physical art alone, for many it is also a journey of discovery about oneself; it starts with the simplest of acts, a bow (Rei) symbolising both your own humility and your respect for the recipient, be that your instructor (Sensei) or training partner.
For many students (Karate-ka) this is the first step on a lifelong journey.
In 2020 we mourned the passing of Sensei Michael Randall MBE the founder and chief instructor of SHOTO
In 2021 we celebrate 10 years of Karate instruction here at SSSK - Sawbridgeworth School of Shotokan Karate
