Shotokan Karate in Blairgowrie & Coupar Angus. Students from all over Tayside, Perth, Perthshire, Dundee, Angus & East Scotland. Practical Karate with the focus on Self Defence and Self Protection.


Welcome to our web site.


We teach kids and adults karate skills that they will retain for a lifetime.  


These skills are focused on self protection. These skills are practical, simple & effective.


The training and learning processes are challenging yet fun and contribute towards the practitioner's welfare and health i.e. self esteem, confidence, fitness, core strength and stamina. This learning and training is a journey in its own right - one to self-perfection - something that we may never achieve but makes for a worthy endeavour.


You don't have to be the strongest, the fastest, the most gymnastic or athletic person - you are not a failure. You find what meets your capabilities, how you enhance these capabilities through adaption leading to your survival of real world encounters.


The club is run by a team of dedicated karate practitioners Ally Whytock and Karen Whytock. Both are British Red Cross First Aid certified, have Disclosures and have attended the Safeguarding and Protecting Children & Children 1st:In Safe Hands courses.
