Stubbington Karate ACADEMY


Stubbington Karate Academy is a dojo with a long tradition. 

For us, it's not all about demanding, challenging & serious training, but seeing our members do their best, learn new techniques and progress is awesome!

It's also about teaching people respect towards others, self-confidence, physical wellbeing.
We're always happy to welcome new members who are interested in joining, so why not browse the site and come along for a try out!


"As someone in the Navy who has recently been deployed for over six months I often worry about the impact on my kids of not being around. Sensei Rob, you and your instructors provide much more than Karate skills. You provide the excellent male role models for my kids that is so important to me when I am away. Thank you" JMC


"Can't recommend Stubbington Karate enough. Great for teaching discipline, control & self-defence. Sensei Rob brings out the best in all the children whilst making each session fun" AM
