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 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.

I like the fact that I'm sat on my backside in the outside photo, and Luke's sat on his inside 🤔

立ち方は大切だから、しっかりと教えてください。力の出し方は、立ち方からです!!つま先の方向と膝の方向は常に一緒です。膝から垂直に下した所に踵が外に出ない事!全空連では、膝と踵は一緒ですね。剛柔流は騎馬立からつま先を45度に開いた所です。この方が移動が楽です。

Sundays at 11:45am
We had an amazing first session and double grading for existing members.
Well done to the 23 who passed
For the 3 who didn't pass, this is probably your most important grading, It is a fact that mistakes and failures often carry important lessons. And these are the lessons, if learned, will help us and lead us to success. Good luck next time.
