Kyudokan Goju Ryu Karate Do

Winner of the Martial Arts School of the Year 2021/22 for Southern England and in 2022/23 for Southern England and Nationally, Kyudokan is a renowned and well established karate school, studying Goju Ryu under the direction of David Morris Sensei.

Since its inception 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 68 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, Winchester Sport & Leisure Park and outdoors during the Summer at Hatch Grange Park in West End.

Standard classes cater for all ages from 6 to 76 years old, all genders and abilities allowing adults and children and families to train separately or together depending on their preference. For younger students, aged 4-5 years old, we have our Kyudokids classes.

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.
