Welcome to Uppsala Shotokan Karate club. USKK was started in 1974 and resides since then in Hamberg (Flogsta låghus). Currently, we have around 40 active members.
USKK belongs to JKS and IJKA Sweden. The head instructor is Görgen Sökare 8 Dan. Since the passing of Shihan Asai, our international head instructors are Masao Kagawa 9 Dan (JKS) and Sadashige Kato 9 Dan (IJKA).

Beginners We welcome beginners during all of january/February and August/September each year. No prior karate experience is necessary. For children 7-9 years old, we have children's sessions. Those 13-16 years old should join the youth group. Those who are older are welcome at the adults' sessions. You may attend 3 trial training sessions before deciding whether to continue.

The fee for one semester is 800 SEK for adults and 500 SEK for children and youth. Pay the fee by transferring to plusgiro 873266-1, Uppsala Shotokan KK. (Remember to write your name in the message field.) The training schedule can be found here.

Directions The easiest access to our dojo is by bus 2, 5, 21, 22 or 91. Leave the bus at Ica Väst and walk towards Hamberg/Flogsta låghus, i.e., the orange 3 story buildings to your right. The dojo is in the cellar of house 93B, which is the first building you will encounter. Ladies' entrance is at the left short side of the building while gentlemens' entrance is on the middle of the long side. Map
