Welcome to Oxford City Shotokan Karate Club

We are a Shotokan Karate club based in Oxford. We focus on offering high quality training in a fun and safe manner. 


Karate is a great form of exercise that not only teaches you self defence, but improves strength, stamina & flexibility. For children it teaches discipline, self control and self confidence. 


We accept students of all ages from 6 years 


Because we are members of JKA-England, the coloured belt grades, and especially black belt are recognised worldwide.  When you pass black belt grade it will be registered in Japan at the JKA headquarters in Tokyo.


We are a friendly club and new students and visitors are welcome. We run beginner’s courses starting each month.


We are a traditional Shotokan club which means that we place great emphasis on the practice of basic techniques (punching, kicking, blocking) and katas (patterns) to make our fundamental karate techniques better.

Our instructors are constantly seeking to improve their training methods. They regularly attend national and international karate courses and specialist instructor courses to ensure that our teaching is of the highest standard.
