Due to the recent COVID19 epidemic, Beckenham SKC is closed for the foreseeable future. So that we can continue to bring karate to students and new beginners, we are operating virtual classes. For more information please contact Clare on 074707847899 or beckenhamskcenquiries@outlook.com

Sensei Roger Fabri founded Beckenham Shotokan Karate Club on 4th September, 1999 at the Studio, Beckenham, in order to pass on his knowledge, dedication and love of Karate.

The club’s principal aims are to promote Shotokan Karate as a way to a healthier lifestyle and a more positive mental attitude, both inside and outside the Dojo (training hall) and to support deserving causes within the local area.

From small beginnings, the club now has several black belts, some of whom have been at the club since the beginner stage.

Get fitter while having fun!

The relaxed atmosphere in the dojo, and the enthusiasm of both the instructors and the students, make learning karate at Beckenham SKC a whole lot of fun. There will be opportunities for meet-ups and activities outside the dojo too!

Meet new people!

Our students vary in age from 6 to 60+. We all train together and learn from each other. You will meet some amazing and interesting people and form long-lasting friendships.

Discipline for both body and mind

Karate is not just a physical activity. As well as following the dojo etiquette, we also adhere to a set of principles which we strive to apply both in the dojo and to our everyday lives. Read more about the Dojo Code.

Great for kids

We have had excellent reports back from parents and schools about the improvement they see in their children's concentration levels, behaviour and ability to focus. Training alongside adults further encourages good behaviour and nurtures mutual respect.
