The idea of joining our club to start-out in JKA Shotokan Karate may
seem a bit daunting to most aspiring martial artists. After all,
everybody else in the class is likely to have more experience than you
- the black belts always look a bit frightening - but it is actually a
lot easier than you may think: it just requires you to turn up and join
in; a tracksuit and T-shirt will do.
You will be given an introduction into the basic Shotokan techniques,
probably by one of those scary black belts (who may turn out to be
human after all), and then you'll join the beginners in their quest to
become a skilled martial artist.
We have put together a short introduction into karate, the Japanese
terminology that is regularly used in JKA Karate, as well as some
guidelines as to what we find important in our club and what you can
expect when you join our club:
