The club is run by Sensei Fil Artusa (5th Dan) with assistance from instructors Sensei Carmine (3rd Dan), Sensei Neil (3rd Dan) and Club secretary Sensei Kim. There is also a growing number of other Dan grades to offer advice and assistance. More information about our instructors can be found here.
Club nights are for all grades but additionally we offer the more experienced Junior and Senior members the opportunity to train in a more specalised concentrated serious environment.
Our aim is to bring out the best in every student, regardless of their ability or disability and to promote health, fitness, self control, discipline and confidence in every student. We will endeavour to encourage every single person that enters our door to do their best and achieve their full potential in all they do, but above all the emphasis will always be on fun and enjoyment.
Our Code of Conduct for the club can be found here.
Training is both necessary and enjoyable. Students are encouraged to train at least twice a week where possible.Do you have a LITTLE WARRIORS or Self Defence class at your school?

The club started as the Lion Works Karate club with chief instructor Michael Say. Sensei Fil took over in 1976 when still a 1st Kyu and in 1981 the club became Woking Karate Club and moved to Woking Leisure Centre where it has remained ever since.
In 1988 LITTLE WARRIORS was formed for 4 - 12 year olds to promote karate to a much younger age group with the emphasise on fun and enjoyment and installing discipline.
Woking Karate Club has now matured into one that is open to martial artists from all styles who have an open attitude and are willing to learn.
