Welcome

Welcome to the DUNSHAUGHLIN KANTANNI KARATE-DO Martial Arts club.

Kantanni Karate-Do is a traditional Martial Art but despite its Japanese name, it is purely an Irish Martial Art, not founded thousands of years ago by some obscure oriental, but developed by a Dubliner, THOMAS WARD.

Osensei Ward also holds Dan grades in Wado Ryu, Jo, Sai, Tonfa, Nunchaku and has been practising in the Martial Arts since 1967. Combining his experience and knoweldge of traditional Martial Arts, Onsensei Ward formed Kantanni Karate-Do in 1975.

Kantanni Karate-Do simply means "the way of the empty hand".

Kantanni Karate-Do promotes disipline and sefl-confidence and includes an extensive array of Kata, various forms of Kumite and Close Quarter Battle techniques.

The Dunshaughlin club which is run by Sensei Peter Fitzsimons, trains Thursday evenings in the Community Sports Centre, Dunshaughlin, Co Meath and caters for all ages.

New members are always welcome and no experience is necessary to join. Please see contact page for class times.
