About us

As part of the Karatenomichi World Federation our club aims at teaching traditional Shotokan Karate. We are located in London and we welcome children and adults from beginners to advanced grades. Students are encouraged to develop speed, power and flexibility which are essential to karate and strive towards perfecting these.

The club started in 1988 by Sensei Sid Tadrist with the aim of passing on the art of Shotokan Karate and also for others to learn this art of self defence.
It runs two separate classes for adults and children. Parents are welcome to train with their children if they wish.


We are conveniently located at the International Student House, close to Great Portland Street tube station (on the Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith and City Lines), Regents Park (Bakerloo Line) and Warren Street (Northern Line)
