Are you looking for a Karate school in Cornwall?

If you live in (or near to) Penzance, Camborne or Redruth, Cornwall Karate has classes which are perfectly located for you!

Cornwall Karate (formerly known as “Samurai Karate Cornwall”) is a “hub” for traditional Karate in the Penzance (Penwith) and Camborne/Redruth (Kerrier) areas of Cornwall.

Karate is a Japanese Martial Art, the history of which dates back to the fifth century A.D.

At our Karate classes, we teach a traditional style of Karate called “Shukokai”, (which is a form of Shito-ryu Karate). “Shukokai” is a Japanese word meaning “way for all”. It is a technical style of Karate, which involves studying how the body works, and using this knowledge to make every technique as quick and powerful as possible. For this reason, it is highly-effective for all students, whether male or female, young or old, tall or short, heavy or light.

Our Karate classes in Cornwall are currently held in Penzance (at Penzance Leisure Centre) plus, starting on Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd November 2016, in Redruth (at Cornwall College).

We welcome students of all ages (from 6+) in our classes. We have a mixed-age “family class”, as well as separate classes for cadets and adults.

We are happy to teach students of all abilities (from complete beginners, to the more advanced), and of all levels of fitness.
