Rengokai Spring course, 2016



Welcome to the Rengokai Karate Association, official website

The Rengokai Karate association is formed of a group of clubs that study and practice the traditional Japanese Martial Art of "Shotokan Karate". Although a new organisation, the clubs have been running for up to thirty five years and the Senior Instructors have up to fifty years experience in Shotokan Karate practice.

(Rengokai Karate has affiliated clubs in Bromley (London), Hampshire and Sussex area, from Brokenhurst, Eastleigh/Southampton to Bognor Regis)

Karate, a Japanese developed martial art, which simply means ‘empty hand’, is much more than the art of self defence. The practice of karate develops self confidence, self discipline, a sense of respect for self and others and is an excellent developer of character.  The physical exercises and regular training develops body stamina and strength and helps to maintain good health. Karate is suitable for most people. Each club accepts members within differant age ranges.

The only way to learn the true art of karate is to practice in a well-established reputable club with instructors who have an excellent knowledge of the art and the ability to teach in a welcoming and friendly manner. This site isn’t intended to be a reference guide for the practice of karate, but has general association information and news. It also has further information on the clubs that will help the person looking for a suitable club to choose the right one.

New members are welcome, and we endeavour to make them feel part of the club in as short a time as possible. If you are interested in trying karate for yourself, or you are one of those many people who have harboured an interest but never found the time, do email or telephone us, or simply come along to one of our sessions and meet the team.

We look forward to seeing you at one of the Rengokai clubs.
