Shukokai Karate Bethesda & Conwy
Welcome to the Sekiryu Karate Club website
Part of the Shito-Ryu Shukokai Union
'Sekiryu' translates to Red Dragon ~ 'Ddraig Goch'. We have clubs based in Bethesda and Conwy, North Wales.
We run friendly and professional karate clubs and pride ourselves on producing a traditional form of Karate-do, which places great emphasis on the development of the character of the student as well as the technical ability. Promoting Respect, Discipline and Etiquette. The clubs also boasts competition success in local, national and international competitions.
The style of Karate we practice is Yamada-Ha Shito-Ryu Shukokai Karate-do, which is under the guidance of Soke Haruyoshi Yamada 10th Dan, successor to successor to Chojiro Tani 1921-1998 (the founder of Shukokai).
Rest In Peace Soke Haruyoshi Yamada Sensei
It is with sadness that we have lost our Chief Instructor, Yamada Sensei on 7th Januray 2018. Sensei successed Tani Sensei as the head of The Shukokai in 1998. His ambition was to rebuild Shukokai out side of Japan. We must now continue to build on his legacy in the future.
