Karate Classes in Fife

Shukokai karate has a long history of Martial Arts in Fife going back more than 40 years. We are a non profit organisation, still going strong, because we love doing what we do. This sporting activity is available to all in the community, regardless of ability or social status.

Our dojos (places of training) are spacious and well equipped and our classes are well
attended, but not overcrowded.

Our instructors coach, teach and train individuals at their own pace, whether they are a beginner or learning to instruct at a black belt level. So each student is treated as an individual in a non-pressured atmosphere.

We offer classes in the following structure. Children 4yrs to 8yrs ; 8yrs to 12yrs ; Youth 12yrs to 16yrs ; Adults 16yrs and above.

Our main place of training is Kirkcaldy on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Feeder clubs to this are from Cupar on Friday afternoons at Bell Baxter High School; St Andrews on Friday nights; Leven on Wednesday nights. See our karate venues in Fife.
