Our Story

Karate-do is a discipline for both mind and body and benefits children and adults of all ages and body-types. Consistent practice strengthens the entire body while simultaneously encouraging the development of self-discipline and good character. In addition to be an effective and practical form of self-defence, karate is also an excellent form of exercise. It improves self-confidence, coordination, concentration and focus, and promotes a positive attitude and a healthy way of life. Furthermore, karate has become increasingly popular as an activity which can be enjoyed by the entire family.

The Brackenfell Shotokan Karate Academy is affiliated to the United Shotokan-Ryu Union (USR). The USR union has been formed based on a modern ideology which will strive to meet and serve the diverse needs of our members and instructors. As part of USR’s objectives, world class instructors will be brought to South Africa, and specifically to the Eastern Cape, Western Cape and Gauteng on an annual basis. Priority will be given to international instructors who transmit Shotokan Karate-do as a form of Japanese Budo rather than as a sport.

We are situated in Brackenfell one of the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town that borders with Kraaifontein, Kuilsriver, Durbanville and Belville. We are in short distance from local businesses, creches, after cares, primary and high schools.
