Athena School of Karate


Welcome to Athena School of Karate

We are based in Oxfordshire, UK, and we offer karate classes from 4 years upwards in our after-school programme. We also offer adult classes on Monday and Wednesday evenings in Botley. Our club is inclusive and friendly: we’re passionate about what we do and keen to meet the needs of our students regardless of their levels of knowledge or fitness.

Our grading syllabus is traditional (Wado Ryu) karate. Additionally, we teach self-protection in an age-appropriate way for all students: this might be conflict resolution for 5 year olds or safety on a night out for our university-aged students. It might be First Aid, or it might be first strikes…our goal is to ensure students have the legal information, the experience, and the skills to manage their lives in an informed and safe way.

We currently have no spaces in our childrens classes and applications are waiting-list only. Our adult programme is available for free trial sessions for beginners over 14.

All memberships are twice-weekly so please ensure this suits your timetable before booking a trial session.
