Welcome to the Official Staffordshire University K.D.S. (Karate-Do Shotokai) Karate Cub. 

The club is a member of the KDS (Karate-Do Shotokai) organisation which is committed to practicing and teaching?Orthodox Shotokan Karate?as taught by Mitsusuke Harada Sensei MBE (a direct Student of Gichin Funakoshi O'Sensei).?

We have resident 2nd, 3rd and 5th Dan black belt instructors all of which are fully qualified and registered coaches with the K.D.S. and Sports Coach UK. All have full Professional Indemnity Insurance, hold first aid qualifications and have full enhanced DBS disclosure.

We have?regular Inter-University Sessions?with Keele University and?club members regularly represent Staffordshire University at various national and international events throughout the year.?

There is a very active social scene so if you are new to Staffs Uni its a great way to meet new people and we also have regular combined socials with Keele Uni karate club!

The training sessions?are for adults only and?enable members to reach their full potential in a friendly, learning environment.?Our aim is to learn the martial art of karate that is effective in a real situation. The club can cater for experienced practitioners as well as complete beginners. 

You don't have to be fit to start karate?and?we are careful to allow each person to work at their own fitness level and slowly build up from there. 

We run regular beginners courses so please feel free to come along to one of our sessions or to contact us anytime for further information.

We look forward to training with you in the future.  come along and give it a go!
