Plymouth Shotokan Karate Club

Plymouth Shotokan Karate ClubWelcome to the home of Plymouth Shotokan Karate Centre. We train in traditional Japanese Karate-do under the tutelage of Sensei Les Clarke (4th dan JKA) who has over 46 years experience in the art.

The club has been running for nearly 46 years and has been part of the Japan Karate association throughout that time, receiving guidance from the World's top Japanese instructors.

Shotokan in PlymouthAll of Plymouth Shotokan's instructors are fully qualified under the JKAE governing body guidelines.

All instructors and coaches teaching at the Plymouth club have to obtain an Enhanced Certificate from the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB), who conduct an in-depth search into the background of any applicants. Only after such searches is a certificate issued. The JKAE has a dedicated Child Protection Unit within the committee to ensure the association keeps in line with current and future legislation. All Instructors are fully insured.
