Traditional Shito-ryu Karate
Kelvin Daniels (6th Dan) started his karate in 1967 under the instruction of the late Sensei Vic Sykes. Following many years of training under some of the top karate instructors, Sensei Shigeru Kimura, Sensei Tekeshi Masuyama and Sensei Keiji Tomiyama to name just a few, he has come full circle back to his Budokan roots and has the great honour of continuing his training directly under Doshu Richard Salmon.

Budo Karate-do S.A. teaches traditional Shito-ryu karate and places great value on the numerous kata and their Bunkai that have been passed down over the years.
Dojos are friendly and offer instruction at all levels and ages as well as hosting style tournaments during the year for students to participate in a friendly environment.
Each year the style offers students the opportunity to take part in an All Grades Gashku, normally a two day event.
In addition, Brown and Black Belts have the privilege of attending a long weekend training seminar (gashku) at a beach camp ending with grading.
