Karate-Do Improves Behaviour at School and Home - Karate-Do is a Martial Art and is one of the most traditional and disciplined of all the martial arts. Through discipline and encouragement this way of training has resulted in children excelling at Karate, School and Home. They begin to listen more, and become more respectful towards parents and teachers.

Why Choose Bushido Karate Club

At Bushido Karate Club we have a very high standard of Karate-Do. All the instructors have trained directly under Hirokazu Kanazawa Soke 10th Dan and the main instructors of SKIF GHQ when they visit Ireland twice yearly.

Over the years many martial arts have become more and more a sport rather than a traditional martial art and have lost the traditional side to their training. Although we have a sport side to Karate-Do, Bushido Karate Club instructors have always embraced the traditional aspect to Karate-Do training, etiquette, and discipline and have kept our training exactly to what Soke Kanazawa has taught.

All instructors at Bushido Karate Club are highly qualified and have graded under SKIF Worldwide which ensures that your child will receive the best Karate-Do training possible.
