Thank you for taking the time to visit us, our Dojo is based at Houghton
Sports Complex and the club has been there for many years. We practise
Shotokan Karate and are a member of the Karate Union of Great Britain, this
is the largest Karate organisation in England. We took over the club from
Sensei Christine Pullan in 1992.
Houghton has many Black Belts as well as lower grades students, we
teach both adults and children and persons with special needs in the same
class. Gradings are held 3 times a year and we always have one of the
K.U.G.B senior instructors taking these grading sessions.
