Teaching shotokan karate, self defence and freestyle combat in the Bournemouth and Poole Area.
Based in Bournemouth, Dorset, Satori Martial Arts Bournemouth was founded by Steve Goodhand in 2006. SMA is a member of the NAKMAS.
The club is fundamentally Shotokan Karate however we cross-train, therefore many elements of martial arts are included (striking, kicking, throwing and grappling).The training covers technique, pad work, forms and street self defence. This is also supplemented with weapons training/defence. Karate will help to develop awareness, confidence, power, speed and coordination.
You also have the opportunity to compete in any open, freestyle and karate tournements. There is no stress on competition; its entirely up to the student if they want to compete.
Please feel free to drop by a class for a free session.
