[ About ]
The style that we train in is based on the original Shotokan style as taught by the late Masters, Gichin Funakoshi and Massatoshi Nakayama.
Sensei Simone Roig y Collado started teaching karate in 2002 at various karate schools across Pretoria and opened her first karate club in 2003. This club started in2015 under Sensei Simone. The club has gone from strength to strength and it is now one of the most successful karate clubs in the Tshwane region.
The club has come a long way from first starting in an old community hall to the present beautiful and fully equipped dojo in Hennopspark. kime KARATE is very active in both national and international karate tournaments. This club has produced champions in world Shotokan events, South African National All Styles Karate events and national Shotokan events.
