Welcome to Hidden Dragon Karate-Do

Welcome to Hidden Dragon Karate-Do. Our vision is for a local Goju Ryu Karate club based on strong family values. The club aims to deliver a fun and professional approach to learning karate and self defence techniques, with a firm focus on developed and effective technique.

If you wish to learn how to defend yourself, increase your confidence, self-discipline or self-esteem, or just improve your fitness, then you can achieve all this at Hidden Dragon Karate-Do by taking part in an activity that's both fun and rewarding. We run a number of classes at venues throughout the area run by a highly trained instructors who will guide you all the way through your journey. Whether you are a complete beginner or have some previous experience, you'll be made very welcome.

These pages contain some basic information about our Dojos, classes, instructors and events, but karate is something you need to experience first hand to totally appreciate. If you feel that this might be the activity for you, please contact me by email or through our Facebook page (details at the bottom of the page).
