Shotokan Karate Club instructed by Sensei Dave Paine 4th Dan. Wantage & Vale Karate Clubs were formed to enable you to learn one of the most effective forms of self defence around, incorporating punching, kicking, striking, sweeping, throwing and many other techniques.
Shotokan karate is a traditional Japanese martial art giving an excellent source of aerobic exercise that helps improve fitness, flexibility, coordination, balance, health and general well being. Regular training promotes a sound mental attitude that improves confidence, discipline and control.
Suitable for ages six to 96, male and female. The club is affiliated to the Traditional Shotokan Karate Association, one of the fastest growing karate associations in the UK, whose governing body is NAKMAS, the largest martial arts association in the UK.
We train at the Wantage leisure centre on Sunday and Thursday Evenings and in the large village hall in Stanford in the Vale on Wednesday and Friday evenings.
