Pershore and Worcester Kimura Shukokai Karate club are proud to be part of the Shukokai Karate Federation who are members of the English Karate Federation (official governing body for Karate in England).
We train in both Worcester (St John's Sport Centre) on Wednesdays from 7:15 - 8:15 and Pershore (Birlingham Village Hall) on Fridays from 7:00 - 8:15.
Pershore and Worcester Kimura Shukokai Karate club are proud to be members of the Shukokai Karate Federation who are members of Kimura Shukokai International(official world governing body for Kimura Shukokai) and English Karate Federation (official governing body for Karate in England). Both clubs are run by Sensei Steve Farrow 3rd Dan.
Beginners will be introduced to the basics of karate including stances, punching, kicking and blocking. There will be general fitness training, self defence and some bag and pad work which will lead on to sparring techniques, ringcraft and sparring itself. Students also learn different forms or sequences of moves known as kata and their application to real life situations. In addition students will learn about the etiquette of karate including politeness and respect.
Karate is a skilful martial art but at the same time it is intended to be enjoyed by the students and get them fit. Students will learn self control and how to share, work and have trust in others.All students are taught that "The ultimate aim of the martial arts lies not in victory or defeat but in the perfection of the character of its participants".
Congratulations to everyone at the Pershore & Worcester clubs who entered the SKF nationals at the weekend, including Rob Bryant and Ryan Cox who came away with silver and bronze in Kata.
