About Us

We are Tori Shukokai… a club based upon the traditional teachings of karate, seeking to keep the true spirit of karate relevant for the modern world through the style of Shukokai, focusing on effective technique and personal development.   We teach every aspect of the martial art to include; Kumite, Kata, & Self-Defence. We are members of the AMA (Amateur Martial Association) which gives us the opportunity to be involved with competitions at both national and international level. We are a warm, friendly club and welcome both children and adults alike to join us.  We invite any new members to come along to try out one of our classes for free in Maidstone, Kings Hill or Medway to meet us and come and see what we do.

 

 

 


Testimonials

Anisha and Rahul have been members for almost two years and enjoy every minute of their lessons. They think their Sensei Sam is great! Sam is excellent with the children, passionate about karate and makes every lesson fun! My Children have attended Karate classes with Sensei Sam Bird for several years. Sam is a wonderful, patient tutor for young students and makes lessons dynamic and exciting for older, more capable students. My Children have gained much from studying Karate including new friendships, exciting experiences, travel and competitions.

Anisha and Rahul

I have nothing but good things to say about The Spirit of Karate. Sensei Sam Bird is a wonderful instructor. He makes classes enjoyable and fun and his passion for karate filters through to each student. My 3 daughters have progressed well under Sensei Sam's tuition and they wouldn't want to train with anyone else.

Carol Instone

I started Shotokan karate in 1989 at the age of 7 until I was 18 and reached my shodan. Iam now 32 and have started Tori Shukokai with sensei Sam Bird and have been training for 3 months. Sensei Bird is teaching me the evolution of karate along with the hidden techniques and is very encouraging in developing those. There is a great discipline in the classes and all the students have the upmost respect for one another. Sensei Sam is encouraging, supportive and at the same time positively critical to bring the best out of all the students and has certainly opened my eyes.
