Karate Academy Scotland is a local club with a long history
in Elgin - the club started over 25 years ago. Sensei John
Craig is a 4th Dan. With more than 25 years of experience,
2016 marked the 10th anniversary since he took over the
running of the club. Karate Academy Scotland is open to people
of all ages. We have students aged between 5 and 60+ training
at all levels. Shotokan Karate is a traditional martial art.
It offers everyone a path of personal growth and development.
Through training, students challenge themselves both mentally
and physically in an effort to master technique and the
application of those techniques. Training requires commitment
to the art and to yourself. Through partner work it encourages
students to work together. Over time, continued training helps
students develop an inner strength of character that flows
through every aspect of their life. Karate Academy Scotland
follows the teachings of Sensei Kase and Sensei Shirai and is
a member of both associations. We hold courses twice a year
with Sensei Marc Stevens and regularly attend training courses
