Hampstead & City Karate Club
We teach traditional Shotokan Karate and are affiliated to the International Shotokan Karate Federation (ISKF), which was founded by Teruyuki Okazaki (10th Dan), direct student of Gichin Funakoshi (the 'Father of Modern Karate').
Classes are led by Japanese instructor Sora Zushi (4th Dan), who has more than 20 years of teaching experience and has trained with some of the biggest names in traditional karate. These include Teruyuki Okazaki, Keinosuke Enoeda, Masaaki Ueki, Yoshiharu Osaka, Tomio Imamura, Masahiko Tanaka and Masao Kawasoe.
We are an inclusive, non-political club and welcome everyone from beginner to advanced, regardless of age or fitness level, and from any karate association.
