Welcome to, the homepage for TKW

We are a small and friendly English Karate Federation-registered group based in Totton, Hampshire, with classes available for children and adults.

Our training revolves around traditional and competitive Karate, self-defence and general conditioning. Our instructors have many years experience in all these aspects of Karate and an enthusiasm for passing these skills on, whether you are a complete novice or have practised before, and we offer one month of sessions absolutely free, allowing you to see whether Karate is suitable for you or your child before you have to spend any money.

Please have a look around the site to find out more info, or get in touch via the contact page if you have specific queries or want to reserve a place in a session.

Thanks for visiting!

Why Karate?

Karate is a challenging and rewarding pastime that allows practioners to get fit and keep active.

This is achieved through training methods that focus on developing physical skills such as mobility, co-ordination and flexibility. These are then applied in a martial arts context, starting with basic punches, kicks and blocks and progressing towards more dynamic and complex patterns. For those with a competitive streak, point sparring is also a regular fixture within our classes.

For both children and adults this promotes self discipline, focus and confidence - so whether you want to learn how to defend yourself, try a new sport or kick-start a more active lifestyle then training with TKW is for you!
