Welcome to the SSSK website which is primarily a reference site for Karate-ka and contains information on Terminology, Testing/Grading syllabus plus videos of Shotokan Kata and Kumite drills.
Whether you are considering taking up Shotokan Karate for the first time or have studied karate previously then you are most welcome to join the Sawbridgeworth School of Shotokan Karate training sessions at the Leventhorpe Academy Leisure Centre on
Thursdays 7.30pm - 8.30pm
Sundays 10.30am - 12.00pm.
We aim to provide a high standard of instruction in Traditional Shotokan Karate based on the teachings of Soke Hirokazu Kanazawa and 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.
