Welcome

Kyudokan Goju Ryu Karate Do


Kyudokan Goju Ryu Karate Do is an established karate school of many years standing and continues to study Goju Ryu karate under the direction of David Morris.

Since its beginning, in 1979, the Kyudokan has represented the traditional values of karate and is one of the very few in the UK still teaching authentic Japanese karate. David continues to study and at 65 his visits to Japan have afforded him a wealth of knowledge, which is evident in the Kyudokan’s teaching ethos: a great depth of tradition, sometimes lacking in the more modern ‘Westernised’ schools.

Whether you are an experienced karateka or just beginning your journey; the Kyudokan will help you on your own martial arts path.

The Kyudokan has weekly training at Chamberlayne Leisure Centre, Bitterne Leisure Centre, Holly Hill Leisure Centre in Sarisbury Green, Places Leisure Centre in Eastleigh, Winchester Sport & Leisure Park and outdoors at Hatch Grange Park in West End.

Classes cater for all ages, genders and abilities allowing adults and children and families to train separately or together depending on their preference.

The structured syllabus helps the student gain and develop confidence and fitness while learning the traditional ways of martial arts.

Everyone has the opportunity to progress through the grades from white belt to black belt and beyond with encouragement to undertake more in-depth study.

In addition to Karate, Kyudokan also offers:

  • Weapons Training: to help co-ordination and dexterity
  • Karate Camp: members can spend a few days a year in the New Forest enjoying camping, BBQ's, obstacle courses and of course Karate!
  • Social Events: in addition to being a truly traditional karate club, the Kyudokan is a very friendly and family focussed organisation and we have an active social scene amongst our members.

So as the sun sets on 2021, and we say, once again, good riddance, here’s hoping 2022 will be one where we...

🥋 Do press-ups like Sensei Hales
🥋 Do squats as low as Sensei Baki thinks he does
🥋Hold shiko-dachi and count to 10 in Japanese like Sensei Paul
🥋Know our kata like Sensei Debbie
🥋Learn Japanese Terminology like Sensei Dan
🥋Wear a gi to training or tattoo the kanji on your chest like Sensei Simon
🥋Learn the Dojo Rules like Sensei David
🥋Learn to take a punch (or unfortunate kick) like Sensei Ross
🥋Practice at home every day like Junior Sensei Charlie
🥋Kiai as loud as Gracie!

WHATEVER THE NEW YEAR BRINGS, WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU ALL TO ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL ONE WITH THE KYUDOKAN.
OSU!

Back on it like a car bonnet in 2022! Taken a bit of a backslide physically and mentally lately, but am now 100% focused for the new year. BRING IT!!! 😎

Squats bit made me laugh! 🤣

We finished our final session this year with some special awards, congratulations to our 3 winners this year.

🥋Junior Student of the year: Max Cockerton🥋
Max always gives 110%, Karate is very obviously a hugely important aspect of his life, Max, is calm, kind natured coupled with the ability to switch into ‘ninja mode’ whenever required, completely embodies the Kyudokan ethos.

🥋Senior Student of the year Jason Spencer🥋
We all agree this person is a million miles away from the quiet and shy RE teacher who first walked through the dojo doors at the start of his Karate journey, he’s not someone who shies away from a bit of a scrap now that’s for sure, his karate is great, his groundwork is coming along nicely, but most importantly his dedication and vast improvement over the last year make him a worthy winner of the senior student of the year's award.

🥋Zanshin award for martial spirit: Finley Jeffries-Amour🥋
Finley has faced real battles outside of the dojo and has overcome hurdles most of us, thankfully, will never have to deal with, and someone who’s karate is fabulous, who always gives his all, and who does so with a smile on his face.
