HOOGHLY TRATIONAL SHOTOKAN KARATE INSTITUTE was established in 2006 in Chinsurah, Dist. Hooghly. Through diligent study of the traditional principles of Shotokan Karate, the aim of the Institute is to provide an environment that allows its members to fulfil their true potential. Classes are disciplined, yet fun, allowing the whole family to participate, learn and develop at their own speed. We start children from as young as 5 years of age. We believe that people of all walks of life can enjoy the many benefits that karate training offers. Karate is not just a great form of self defense, but provides all students the opportunity to enhance their character and develop confidence, focus and inner security. Above all, we teach in a non-contact environment to provide a safe training environment and to encourage self-discipline and control. Karate training allows you to improve your fitness while learning something valuable at the same time.
The Institute provides quality instruction from an extremely experienced team of senior teachers, committed to developing students to progress the Art of Karate-Do for the future. In addition to a dedication of traditional principles, we believe that an embracing of modern knowledge will allow the ability of our members to eventually exceed that of the Institute's most senior instructors.
We are Govt. Registered under Societies Registration Act - XXVI of 1961. Member of JAPAN KARATE ASSOCIATION WORLD FEDERATION INDIA (Member Japan Karate Association, Tokyo), an unit of INDIAN FEDERATION OF SHOTOKAN KARATE (Member of Karate Association of India & Karate Association of Bengal), member of HOOGHLY KARATE-DO ASSOCIATION (the official district body for Karate Association of Bengal).
