Weekly martial arts instruction include Shotokan Karate class with a belend of Tai Chi and Aikido. The club is affiliated to the English Traditional Karate Federation, and accepts members from Reading, Lower Earley, Woodley, Earley, Calcot, Burghfield Common, Caversham and Tilehurst

Our basic style is Karate, and we follow the katas of Shotoka Karate, but, over the year our emphasis has been on Karate Jutsu which is the root of martial arts. instead of restricting ourselves to modern Karate, we incorporate principles from various arts like Tai Chi, Aikido and so on. We believe that what works is what is right.

Different people have different body physiology, and the structure and type of body dictates the ability of an individual to perform an action. At the Kensho Dojo you are encouraged to understand your own body and awaken the martial artist lying dormant in you.

Apart from the regular training we also encourage students to attends workshops by experts in various fields like Pressure points, Internal arts and other styles.
