Bristol Karate Club Demo - Bristol Karate Club championship winners demonstrate the power of perfect timing
We have been established in Bristol for over 40 years and we are proud to be founder members of the Western Karate Union.
The style of karate we practice has its origins in the Wado Ryu system and has been developed and enhanced over the years.
Our students come from all walks of life and range from complete novices up to International Level including a World Champion!
The Bristol Karate Club Summer Course was well attended despite the weather trying its worse. Well done to everyone who managed to keep going until the end and a special big thanks to the large number attending from the 'Far East'.
The WKU and Bristol Karate Club were well represented at the recent Karate-Do Shitokai England Championships in Gloucester. The Bristol Junior squad did exceptionally well and were placed second overall in the total medals table.
