Tairyoku Shotokan Karate Club

Welcome to

Who are we?

We were founded and established on 18th September 1999 by Sensei Lester Wellington and started out at our Bierton Dojo. Since then he has trained many students to attain their Black Belt and has had great success with a number of students being part of the JKA England Squad. Our Club Instructors are qualified and EKF approved, First Aid trained and have DBS enhanced certification. With eight regular dojo's and two school dojos throughout Buckinghamshire and spilling into Oxfordshire in which you can train. We accept students of all ages from 7 years +, whether you are male or female; a complete novice or experienced karateka; Martial artist from another Association or style, you are welcome.

We are involved in an Extended Schools Programme (ESP) with JKA England which provides the opportunity for children to try karate within their school environment at a fraction of the normal cost. They are then at liberty to join a regular dojo and progress in the normal manner. Currently we have two schools participating in the ESP located in Buckingham and Swanbourne.
