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.

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!!

Over 45 years, I have taught maybe 10000 students. 

I enjoy teaching especially when I see students of the calibre of Finlay. He is a fine young man whose determination and focus is a pleasure to witness. 

I hope he continues his journey and achieve whatever goals he has, Well done Finley!Image attachment

Kyudokan is a traditional Karate dojo with an Innovative approach

For grading kyudokan assess their students at every training session and communicates progress through the Kyudokan App.

This ensures that the standard needed for the next grade is practiced everyday and not just at a pre-arranged grading event.

This approach also helps many students who get nervous doing exams.

Students then receive their grade at their lesson.
Kyudokan Karate students never have to ask for their grade, they can track their progress at all times and be confident that they will receive it when they are ready.

Here are a few pictures of students that have recently graded using this process, well done to everyone that graded recently! if you have any pictures of you with your new belts from this weekend feel free to post and tag us in them, Look forward to seeing all your pictures!
