About Goshin Karate

Goshin Karate Logo

Goshin Karate is a traditional form of Karate-Do. Its roots are based within Japanese Shotokai and Malaysian Karate Budokan. Goshin replaces linear movement with techniques using evasion and also replaces powerful blocks with fluent deflections. The style has a great emphasis on having a realistic approach to training and bridges the gap between traditional basics and the practice of the fighting form.

Goshin Karate is a Martial Art not a Martial Sport. The main objective of the style is to learn realistic self defence for everyday life. There is no emphasis on competition and students are not forced to enter them. Students that wish to test their skills can enter the UK Kudo Championships. Students practice full contact sparring which incorporates groundwork.
