The Association of Traditional Shotokan Karate (ATSK) is a karate association that follows the traditional values of martial arts, as originated by Master Funakoshi (1868-1957); and developed and taught by Master Hirokazu Kanazawa.
The people that take part in karate include children from 4 years old, up to adults of no upper age range.
We also include people from all cultures and people with disabilities within the mainstream club.
ATSK also have a sister organisation, the Federation of Traditional Martial Arts (FTMA), which helps instructors of other martial arts to become independent and offers support in setting up their own association.
ATSK ensures that all instructors teach in a responsible, professional manner, following the educational teaching strategies that the Chief Instructor has developed; and ensuring that the dojos are a safe and controlled environment for all students, whether they are a beginner or black belt.
