Translated quite literally as "empty hand", karate refers to the ability to defend oneself without the use of a weapon.Many different forms and styles have evolved from this simple idea, and karate can vary greatly from teacher to teacher.

The English interpretation of Shubi Chikara is "self-defence power", which is where we focus our particular techniques. Our training is based on the principles and philosophies of the original founders of karate, designed to build strength, speed, self-control, coordination and confidence.

When our students are ready, they also engage in kumite (sparring) to simulate real self-defence situations.
