Welcome to the website of the Queen Mary Karate-do Shotokai (QMKDS) group.
Karate-Do Shotokai, or KDS as we more often refer to it, is a traditional karate style which focuses purely on the practice of karate as a martial art. Whilst we work to develop a range of effective techniques, we don’t just practise by rote. Instead, we train to build an awareness, both physical and mental, that lets us manage a situation decisively – without the distraction of competitions or commercialism.
Our sessions are open to all students of the University of London. We run a friendly, social club based in the Queen Mary campus near Mile End where questions are encouraged and everyone is allowed to get the very best out of themselves – all in the spirit of developing quality karate practitioners.
