Hello and Welcome to the online home of

Morpeth & Blyth Shotokan Karate Clubs.

The Morpeth Dojo was established by Juli Pops in 1997, we have been based  at the Morpeth Riverside Leisure Centre for over 20 years.

The Blyth Dojo was established by the inimitable Sensei Jeff Westgarth in 1980. After 37 extremely successful years, Sensei Westgarth decided to move on for pastures new and Juli Pops is now instructing the classes based at Blyth Sports Centre.
