Membership is open to children and adults of all ages, backgrounds, abilities and experience. We welcome those who have studied karate in the past and would like to refresh and develop their skills, as well as complete beginners who are curious about karate and just want to try something new. The club will cater for persons with special needs or disabilities wherever possible.
Axios Shotokan Karate Centre is affiliated to the World Shotokan Karate Federation (WSKF), an organisation that was founded nearly thirty years ago in Japan to promote, foster and teach Shotokan karate throughout the world. Upon applying for membership of Axios SKC, all members must also apply for a one-off life-time membership of WSKF through which they will receive their grading licence allowing them to train, grade and compete. Axios SKC has linked to some other local WSKF clubs to form WSKF England which together arrange for third-party indemnity insurance for members and organise seminars in the UK with WSKF master teachers and participation in national and international competitions.
Application forms for both Axios SKC and WSKF membership can be obtained from your instructor, together with current fees and payment options.
