See us in action —
Learn karate properly at one of Europe's top karate schools. Aberdeen-based NKI is run exclusively by NVQ qualified instructors. NKI is an OCR approved centre for the delivery of Vocational Qualifications and a Centre of Excellence for Karate. We are proud to be the premier club in the North of Scotland and, in all Scotland, holder of more prestigious international awards than any other.

A family organisation, the safety of the children in our care is of the utmost importance to us. We strive to provide a safe environment in which children and adults can practise. Many parents come to our dojo to train at the same time as their children. Special children-only classes are also provided.

Successful karate students drive themselves to train; they practise at home and strive to improve their technique. This is important as discipline and dedication lie at the heart of individual success in all aspects of life.

The qualities that we help our students identify and develop are those that have been the backbone of Scottish achievement through the ages. We embrace a martial art and use it to uncover and develop the qualities that we need as an ambitious 21st century country. SHOTOKAN KARATE: A SHORT HISTORY
