About us

Sensei Doras began his karate training in 1973, with Sensei Cyril  Cummins 8th Dan, and over the years has trained with some of the top Japanese and European Instructors. He has also competed at the highest level (Regional, National and International competitions).

The Club is a registered member of NAKMAS. We offer training in Traditional Shotokan karate to interested parties above the age of 6.Drop in and see us – we’d love to meet you!
