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.

On Friday 3rd September David Sensei walked 3/4 of the way up Mount Snowdon and then back down.

This was an incredible challenge for him, every step he was fighting the pain of Parkinson’s Disease but his spirit and relentless determination carried him through.

On Saturday 18th September the Senior Sensei’s will be returning to the Mountain to help David Sensei complete the journey.

On the way up this final stage we will be holding a full Gi Karate lesson.

This challenge will be in support of David’s Parkinson’s fund raising campaign, you can donate by following this link:

We would also like to invite any Senior members who would like to join us for the challenge. Message or check your emails for more info.

This man is just an absolute legend! Absolutely scared the crap out of me when I’d come in the dojo late…however at 34 I can still monkey run super fast, put my palms flat on the floor and oh yea kick some butt if I need too 😂 I’m sure all your students old and new are behind you sensei, good luck 😊

I wish I hadn't already been booked up that day or else I would have joined you. Sounds awesome. If any other such expeditions though I hope I'll be able to join. Can't wait to see the photos. Tim

I would have loved to join but I am doing the race for life the same day! 😅 If I had no plans I would definitely be there

Well done!! 🤩💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

🤍❤️🤍

I just checked, there's no rooms left 👎

You guys are an inspiration! I was trying to muster the energy just for a run around the block this am, but having seen this I’ve got no excuse. SMASH IT! 👊

Zoë says: Are you going up in stances and doing katas on the way. I hope so. You need to practice your karate once in a while!🤪 ZOË

I can’t make this week or next because of (to be fair) much needed holiday time. Back with a vengeance in Sept!! 🙌💪🥋

It has always been debatable wether kicks, high or low are practical. Depending on the style of martial art , kicking is widely used and although in Goju ryu isn’t renowned for its kicking ability, to dismiss this technique against styles like Taekwondo or Kokyushinkia would be a grave mistake. I’ll leave the debate to the more serious martial artist. For me, tonight’s lesson was just really good fun, great exercise and looks pretty cool tooImage attachmentImage attachment

It’s one of the most rewarding feeling a teacher can get. Seeing an old student return to the dojo. It was good to see Grant back in the dojo…. and with his children!!
