Welcome to Sheffield Goju Ryu!
Traditional Goju Ryu Karate is a complete self defence system using punching, kicking, knee and elbow strikes and open-handed techniques. We emphasis on close-combat fighting, with focus on manipulation of joints and vital points, strangulation, throwing techniques and ground fighting. You will also learn many important foundations such as generating power, grounding, tension/relaxation and body evasion.
The dojo is open for people of all ages from 6 years to senior citizens. Our Sensei (Instructors) will ensure that you train in a safe and controlled environment while gaining all round fitness, co-ordination, confidence, discipline and completely functional self defence.
