Shotokan's review of Karate

“Karate-London, now part of Shotokan Karate England,...”

Written on: 21/11/2005 by Shotokan (1 review written)

Karate-London, now part of Shotokan Karate England, has clubs in the Chingford, Enfield, Walthamstow, Larkswood, Whitechapel, Leyton, Tring and Wanstead areas. These Shotokan Karate Clubs have established a standard for Karate in London that is unparalleled. Many adults and Juniors who have started as beginners in the clubs, have gone on to reach Black Belt level and achieve National and International success.



The clubs welcome new beginners or advanced students to progress, learn and improve


Sensei Rod Butler the clubs' Chief Instructor, has 30 years of experience in Shotokan Karate. He was a long time member of the KUGB and the JKA and achieved his 4th Dan KUGB JKA under Sensei Enoeda in May 1999 at the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre in London. The late Sensei Enoeda was the highly respected Chief Instructor of the KUGB as well as the Chief Instructor of JKA Europe.

You will be assured of a warm welcome to the clubs by Rod and his team of fully qualified Black Belt Instructors. Rod and his team will ensure that you enjoy your training and also get the best from yourself. Over the years the clubs have produced more than 150 Black Belts.



Throughout each week there are classes especially targeted towards beginners, intermediate, and advanced Black and Brown Belt students and instructors. You can choose which classes are suitable for you on our Club Locations page and then come along and watch a class in progress. Naturally, if you are keen and wish to start straightway, you can. You need no special clothing to start, just something loose fitting and comfortable.

As well as running the clubs, Rod has written articles for various Martial Arts publications including SHOTOKAN MAGAZINE, TRADITIONAL KARATE and FIGHTING ARTS INTERNATIONAL. He also assisted in the production of Sensei Enoeda's series of VIDEOS AND BOOKS on advanced SHOTOKAN KATA.



Rod has also travelled to Japan, training at the famous JKA Dojo in Tokyo and has completed a BOOK about the late SENSEI ENOEDA 9th Dan with photos, notes and information collected over many years. Look out for: 'KEINOSUKE ENOEDA~TIGER OF SHOTOKAN KARATE.'


Karate-London is also very proud of its links with Lexus Woodford who have been sponsors of the club since 2000, and have supported the clubs in their exceptional progress and success during the last few years.
