We would like to invite you, your friends, classmates and family to join our Sato Kai Karate Club. Our traditional Japanese karate club was established in 1970 by our current Founder –  Sensei Akira Sato.

Sato Kai has students aged from 6 Years to 80 Years of age at all skill levels from Beginner White Belt to Advanced Black Belt.

We offer comprehensive training and lessons for all levels that are designed to meet the needs of all participants in a friendly and supportive manner. Instruction is mostly provided in a group setting, but one-on-one instruction and / or private lessons can be arranged. For those with unique Special Needs we can adjust the training for you.

We are confident that we can meet your needs whether it be fun, fitness, friendship, vigorous training, support and / or competition.

First lesson is free.
