Having studied traditional karate when younger I was looking for an organization with the same core values. While searching for karate online I found there were many dojos around but not many teaching a traditional style. That was until I came across Toyakan Higashi Karate. From the moment I walked through the dojo doors I knew this was the place I had been looking for. An absolutely amazing traditional looking dojo teaching traditional karate. Initially I was just looking to be a good role model for my daughter and teach her about hard work and achieving goals but it has become so much more. My passion for karate has been reignited. All of my family now do karate and it is something great that we can share together. The instructors are of an extremely high calibre and classes are challenging but fun. I am hopeful of achieving a goal of mine and grade to black belt in December this year. We love being part of the club, are very happy and have met some wonderful people.
