TAI RYOKU KAI KARATE

The practice of karate soon brings self-confidence, discipline and fitness. Those who do not excel in competitive sports will soon find their participation and physique improved because of the training.
The equipment for karate is relatively simple consisting of a cotton jacket and trousers. These can be purchased from the club instructor.

Sensei Patrick Dobson 2nd Dan
