Welcome to Karatesite

Karatesite is for Karate parents, students and instructors.

We provide insight, opinion and advice, especially for parents of Karate-ka. Karate is a hugely popular martial art in England, enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. With many styles to choose from and a complicated structure of associations and governing bodies it's not always easy to know if you are following the path best suited to your aspirations. Our background is in Wado, but our site discusses wider issues affecting everyone.

Karatesite has two underlying beliefs that has inspired us to create this web site:

  Karate brings immeasurable benefits to all those who practice it. In a world with little emphasis placed on respect, discipline and commitment, Karate offers a way of life that is invaluable to both participants and society as a whole. Karate is worth all of us being passionate about it.   The National Bodies of Karate and all those who manage associations are accountable to the future generations now. The youngest Karate-ka are the grand masters of the future. The 9th Dans awarded in 2060 will be to the 10 year-olds training this week.  

There are plenty of Karate club sites on the net, but few, if any, like Karatesite.

Amongst our pages you'll find:

  • Explanations of how Karate disciplines differ
  • The structure of Karate in the UK
  • What to look for in a club
  • The changing rules and regulations
  • The risks and rewards of Karate
  • Karate and the Olympics
  • Places to source equipment
  • And much more . .
