Kata on Table Mountain
Worcester Shotokan Karate Club
(WSKC) is a martial arts club in Worcester (UK) affiliated to the International Japan Karate-Do Association (IJKA) and dedicated to teaching the Japanese martial art of Shotokan karate. The club is run on a 'non profit' basis.

We welcome new students, aged 12 or above. You will be given detailed and sympathetic instruction, carried out in a systematic manner with due regard to physical ability, placing maximum emphasis on your welfare to avoid injury. Beginners classes

New students wishing to learn karate do not need special clothing or equipment in the first instance - a tracksuit bottom and sweatshirt or similar loose clothing will be perfectly adequate. However, a Keikogi (Karate training suit) should be acquired after a student has completed several weeks of regular training. We can assist our students in obtaining Keikogi at very reasonable prices.

Membership of WSKC offers students the opportunity of travel within the UK and worldwide to attend seminars held at other clubs affiliated to the IJKA.
