Karate, kickboxing, BJJ or self-defense? Choose them all, choose Honbu!

In Honbu, Koryu uchinadi karate is combined with other karate styles and martial arts. The aim is to become, physically and mentally, a good fighter.

Karate club Honbu

Welcome to the Students' Karate Club Honbu! We welcome all existing martial artists and karatekas-to-be to join our lively group of fighters. We arrange a beginner's course once a year starting in September. The next course starts 13th of January 2020. You can join the basic course until the end of March. If you already know karate, you might want to start at the practices for the upper belts.
