About Us

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.

Federation of Traditional Martial Arts

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.
