Our club started as the Lion Works Karate club with chief instructor Michael Say. In 1976, Sensei Fil took over while still a 1st Kyu and in 1981 it became Woking Karate Club. Today it’s a thriving Shototan club with a family-type atmosphere where all are welcome. We have an adult membership of around 50 men and women of all shapes, sizes, ages and grades.
Our Junior Club, known as LITTLE WARRIORS, is for 4-12 year olds. Formed in 1988 to promote karate to a much younger age group with the emphasis on fun and enjoyment and installing discipline, it currently has a membership in the region of 100 regular trainees from the age of 4 upwards.
The club is run by Sensei Fil Artusa (5th Dan) with assistance from instructor Sensei Carmine (3rd Dan) and Club secretary Sensei Kim. There is also a growing number of other Dan grades to offer advice and assistance. More information about our instructors can be found here.
Club nights are for all grades but additionally we offer the more experienced Junior and Senior members the opportunity to train in a more specalised concentrated serious environment.
Our aim is to bring out the best in every student, regardless of their ability or disability and to promote health, fitness, self control, discipline and confidence in every student. We will endeavour to encourage every single person that enters our door to do their best and achieve their full potential in all they do, but above all the emphasis will always be on fun and enjoyment.
