The ‘Azami’ karate club is the longest running club in the central district, which was established in 1963. The desire for continual improvement to
develop a more efficient and effective Martial Art has meant that the club has taken several different paths in the quest to find ‘the way’.
The club initially trained in the style of ‘Shotokai’ through ‘Sen-No-Kai’ to now ‘Makotokai’. This style now incorporates basic principles of both ‘Aikido’ and ‘Tai
Jutsu’ with regular use of JO short staff and BOKKEN wooden sword to throws, locks and KI energy.
The emphasis is on honest endeavour to the Fighting Art, True Technique and Inner Strength. This ‘soft’ Martial Art is complemented by
they use of Qi Gong and Tai Chi exercises, which are not the main principles of the many ‘hard’ styles of competition based sporting karate.
The ‘Azami’ and all the other Makotokai Karate Do clubs are a non-profit making organisation, which is affiliated to M.A.D.E.C. (Martial Arts Development Commission). All will be made welcome to
train from complete beginners to competent participants in the martial arts. Training is in the Grangemouth High School on
Thursday nights throughout the school term.
