Operating as usual


Sorry all but tonight’s class is cancelled, The winter bug has hit! This was also the last class of 2022 plus the belt presentation. Hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas extended break.


A small but successful grading was held today for the students who were selected to grade. Congratulations to all who passed ! Special mention to Xavier Lawry who really showed the karate ethos of spirit 1st !!!
Keep the good work up 👍


Hi all, just a quick reminder about the grading tomorrow- 😁
11am start, please wear a clean white gi and Student’s must be licensed to grade.

As mentioned in class this week , this is the 1st time to grade at my own club, it’s not something I like doing. Tomorrow I will be a grading examiner not the club instructor, Sensei Paul Davies will also be present.
Students , Remember spirit first technique second 😉


Well done to Octobers Student of the Month ….Xavi Lawry! Brilliant attitude and effort shown throughout, Keep it up Xavi 👌


Gradings are confirmed for Sunday 27th 11am at Rhondda Sports Centre.
To be eligible to grade you must have a valid WKA licence. Attendance is paramount over the coming weeks to be eligible to grade and to give yourself the best chances of passing. The focus on each lesson from now until the grading will be your Syllabus, Kata and Kumite.


We have our “Kumite Class” this Wednesday 7pm-8pm, A dedicated class to competition karate. On the tatami is where champions are made !!!!!
WKF accredited coach ✅
Mats, mirrors and air con ✅
High intensity drills ✅
A fantastic session to develop your kumite skills, get fighting fit and smash your goals. Get in touch for more info or to book your place.


We understand that we’re all facing increased household costs so to try and take this away have a fantastic initiative for the club.
“Bring a friend, you both train free!” This runs alongside the current new starters free lesson.
Free karate …Brilliant !!!
Wednesday 6pm Rhondda Sports Centre 😁


Great lesson tonight working on the grading syllabus, Superb attitude shown by you all. Remember next week is the initiative to bring a friend and you BOTH get to train for free 👍 as long as you bring a friend you’ll Never pay for a karate lesson again 😂


Fantastic positive meeting tonight around the changes at the club 😁 here’s a couple of bullet points for the ones who missed it.
🔘 Club to return to twice weekly from November onwards (Monday & Wednesdays)
🔘Dedicated Kumite class (7pm-8pm on Wednesdays)
🔘 Gradings now come with a free belt included in the grading fee.
🔘 monthly option to remain at £25 giving an average lesson cost of £2.80. (Excluding the Kumite class)
Exciting times 🥋👌


So after being a part of the Welsh Shotokan Karate Organisation for over 12 brilliant years, we have now parted ways and we will be a part of the new association the Welsh Karate Alliance ! This will be headed up by Myself and Sensei Paul Davies (Swansea Karate Academy - WKA) the passion and success that gave us a brilliant time at the WSKO will be even more evident here !


Don’t forget quick meeting at 5.30pm before class about a couple of changes 😁

So tonight we had another belt presentation, well done to brothers Xavi & Hunter Lowry! Your doing great boys keep it up 👏🥋

Photos from Invictus Karate's post 19/01/2022

Our 1st class back kicked off with a belt presentation for both Nicky Haines & Lucas Carpenter. Both passed their 1st kyu grading before Christmas but only now getting the belts. 2022 is going to be big year for them.


Hi everyone. Please can you DM a current contact mobile telephone number. We are going to be setting up an Invictus Wattsapp information group for anyone who is currently training and I need to check I have your correct mobile numbers. Thank you 🥋📱📞☎️🥋


So we have the green light for the classes to start back as of this Wednesday! We do have some Covid restrictions and policies in place like before.
▪️Track and Trace
▪️Limited numbers
▪️No spectators and where possible please leave your child at the dojo entrance

I’m sure these restrictions will relax in time but for now please respect the rules.
See you all Wednesday 7pm 😁


Happy 17th Birthday to the one and only Daniel Rees ! The fact he can now legally drive is a concern 🤣😂


With the Welsh Government’s latest restrictions we have made the decision to delay opening the club after the Xmas break 😔 we will review this decision either at the end of January or when restrictions are eased, which ever is sooner. Our club is facing an uncertain future right now and I hope these latest rules are not in force long. There are spaces available on Tuesday & Thursday at Bushidō Hombu Dojoo in the Waen Wen centre.


Must be true 😁

We don't make the rules.


After a very challenging 2021 here’s to 2022 !!! Happy New Year everyone I hope it’s the best one yet.


Good luck today to everyone grading! Work hard because remember, if it was easy everyone would be doing it.
