Our Club History

Tokkotai – The Karate Centre (formerly known as Tokkotai Karate Club) was formed in 1978.

In March 2011, TKC decided to move its classes to a dedicated full time dojo which is located in the centre of Stalybridge behind Stalybridge fire station and next to Stalybridge railway station.

TKC is one of the oldest established Karate clubs in Tameside and the oldest and the first Karate club in the Stalybridge area. The Karate Centre has produced many champions at both local, national and european levels in competition.

The name ‘Tokkotai’ means ‘Special or Secret Attack’.
