About Us


Welcome to the website of the London clubs of the Shotokan Karate Association. If you're in North London and you want to learn karate, you've come to the right place! The SKA was founded over 25 years ago by Sensei Greg Durant, 8th Dan, who began his training under the legendary Sensei Hirokazu Kanazawa, 10th Dan. We have a network of clubs in North London, and a number of affiliated clubs in Essex, Hertfordshire and East Anglia. The head instructors of each club have many years of experience.
