Practical Karate Association

The Practical Karate Association in High Wycombe provides its students with the best self defence skills as well as giving them a healthy exercise regime.

Our Shotokan and DART Karate classes focus on close quarter paired self defence drills, striking and grappling skills, legally underpinned personal safety strategies, and martial arts exercises that improve mobility, strength and aerobic fitness.

Modern Karate has its origins in close quarter defensive tactics from a fusion of Chinese and Okinawan fighting styles that were originally taught in secret on Okinawa, with the majority of karate systems descended from Royal Bodyguard Sokon Matsumura. It was not designed as a duelling art, but as an effective way of dealing with attacks by thugs. In the early 20th Century the high value of karate as a form of physical exercise was also recognised, and it was adopted by the Okinawan education system before being exported on to Japan and subsequently the world.
