Portchester Karate Club was founded in 1982

Welcome to Portchester Karate Club’s official website

(Portchester is located between Portsmouth and Fareham, in Hampshire)

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 and at Portchester our members range from 6 to 80.

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 it is full of information on the club and how karate is practiced within it.

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 the club.

"New" Intermediate Kyu Grade Class.

Due to the popularity of the Wednesday Parents and junior adult grades class between 6.30 and 7.30pm, we have now started an "Intermediate Kyu Grade Class" which runs from 7.40 to 8.55pm.

The class is intended for Yellow Belts to Purple and White Belts, ie 7th to 4th Kyu grades. To allow for work and family commitments, some flexibility in grades attending, is envisaged.

Please note that all other classes remain the same.
