Poulton Karate Academy is a traditional Shotokan Karate Club based in Poulton le fylde, England. The club is managed by an active committee of Dan grade Karateka who are Japanese trained. The aim of this blog is to extend the club to a wider audience promoting training, gradings, news and social events that you as visitor may find useful.
We train at Hodgson Academy, Moorland road, Poulton Le Fylde every Tuesday and Thursday from 7pm.
Last night the dojo was packed for a world-class training session. There were a number who successfully passed their first grading examination. After some unusual kihon combinations, the focus was on kata. John Fallows led the seniors through the finer points of Hangetsu and Mark Watts assisted the kyu grades with their grading kata.
