Welcome to

Shotokan Nation

Our karate journey started with the Karate Union of Great Britain, a world renowned organisation whose technical excellence in Shotokan Karate is unlikely to be surpassed. They provided us with the foundation of our karate, selflessly nurtured our knowledge and skills, and gave us experiences we will never forget. From their members have come lifelong friends. The Karate Union of Great Britain has helped to shape our lives, for which we are eternally grateful.

We are now ready for a new path in our karate journey

We are a group of dedicated practitioners of Shotokan Karate, many with senior grades and decades of experience of training, competing and teaching karate. We feel that now is the right time for Shotokan Nation, an inclusive organisation that will not only support our karate development, but by working with and never against other associations and karateka, facilitate the sharing of knowledge, skills and experience for the benefit of others. We will build a safe, exciting and progressive place to train and compete, develop life skills, and grow as a group and as individuals. We will train, learn and develop together with our members and with the wider karate community.

  • develop our karateka of all capabilities at all levels
