The Ely, Newmarket and Soham Shotokan Karate Clubs are growing clubs that were established over eight ears ago. The club has students ranging from the age of 4 up to an adult level, where all ages are mixed in classes together maintaining a good family atmoshpere.
In the lessons we cover three main areas:
· Kihon (Basics)
· Kata (Forms)
· Kumite (Sparring)
As well as covering these three areas we focus on building fitness in lessons, whilst still enjoying training. Throughout the year gradings are held regularaly, where students take an exam for their next grade, with many young students this promotes self confidence and a sense of achievement.
Aside from gradings there is also an annual competition held internally, which gives students the opportunity to compete against other members of TISKA from around the country.Classes in Ely, Newmarket, Soham and March
The resident instructor in Ely, Newmarket and Soham Shotokan Karate club is Mrs Stockley, a 5th Dan black belt who has been training for over 22 years with TISKA.
Mrs Stockley began her training at Kettering Shotokan Karate club under TISKA's Chief Instructor Sensei Sahota (8th Dan) with her son, later her daughter also joined. Since, Mrs Stockley has continued her training and she has achieved the level of 5th Dan black belt (Godan) at a course held in La Manga, Spain.
As Mrs Stockley has always trained in Shotokan Karate with her family, this idea has been maintained through all of her clubs where she promotes a good family atmosphere where all students train hard, keeping fit and having fun.Contact Club Instructor
