We are committed to providing the highest quality tuition in JKA Shotokan Karate in south-east Scotland. By joining our family dojos in Fife and East Lothian, you are benefitting from regular training with instructors who invest time and money in keeping standards high by regular training in Japan at the JKA hombu in Tokyo and with JKA Japan senior instructors in England, Scotland and other European countries.
We began to offer virtual training in March 2020 as a result of COVI-19. We are now fortunate enough to be able to train 100% face in face in JKA Karate Dalgety Bay but in Lothian, have to stick to Zoom classes due to the local lockdown (expected to end Sunday 1st November 2020).
Training in Dalgety Bay
Face to face training really can't be beaten when it comes to learning karate in a supportive and enjoyable atmosphere. All of our hard work in ensuring the Dalgety Bay dojo is safe to come and train in has paid off with us being able to re-open fully from the 2nd of September 2020 for all age groups.
We've put on extra classes to cover the class limits in place so it really is an excellent chance to learn from an instructor in a small class, where you can get almost individual attention. In addition, Dalgety Bay members get access to a library of hundreds of hours of high quality video instruction.
New payment structure for Dalgety Bay Members only
Now we've been able to reopen face to face instruction at Dalgety Bay, we need to look at returning to normal face to face training rates instead of the discounted Zoom offer we put on over lockdown.
Effective Monday, 26th October, we're introducing the payment rates below. We've done our best to keep prices affordable while reflecting the increased personal attention you will now get in your smaller Dalgety Bay dojo classes.
As part of COVID-19 precautions, we can no longer accept cash payments. The best method to minimise your costs is to sign up through your PayPal account to one of our membership plans, listed in the table below.

Training at North Berwick or Musselburgh?
Due to Covid restrictions, we cannot offer the same range of face to face training options in North Berwick or Musselburgh as is on offer in Dalgety Bay's bespoke training facility.
For North Berwick, we hope to open one night a week - Mondays - at the Sports Centre for face to face training with Sensei Steve Fraser JKA 2nd Dan, supplementing that with a Wednesday night Zoom class, again provided by Sensei Steve Fraser JKA 2nd Dan.
For Musselburgh, we hope to open two nights a week, with one class led by Sensei Liam Garrett JKA 2nd Dan and the second with Sensei Bert Stewart, JKA 5th Dan. This will provide two opportunities for training a week.
We are not changing the prices for members in North Berwick and Musselburgh - these are remaining the same as indicated below. This reflects the decreased opportunities here for face to face training.
