Welcome to Shotokan Karate Hamilton

2021 Training

We hope everyone is safe and well, it’s looking more and more promising that vaccines are going to bring a way forward to re-open the dojo in some form to allow us to all train together again.  Sensei Jim is working to understand what this means for getting the club going again and we’ll place an update here on that shortly.

In the meantime Sensei Megan has been busy at work and is looking to spread the word on a Community Game called ‘Beat the street’.  Some details on that below, if you’re keen to get some exercise until we all get to train again why not give this a go ?


We have great news for the communities of Hamilton and Blantyre! Beat the street game is coming and it’s free to play. The game has been such a success across East Kilbride, Rutherglen and Lanark to name but a few.

So what’s it all about?

Beat the street aims to get communities active by playing a points based game, play as an individual or as part of a team! Simply collect the materials needed (a map & card) from one of the distribution points, register online and start scanning your card on “Beat boxes” located round the towns to win points for your team! You can walk, run, cycle, roll or scoot around the towns to collect your points as part of your daily exercise and there will be individual prizes throughout including prizes for those in the first 3 places of the leaderboards at the end of the 6 week game period.

The distribution points will be posted on this website closer to the game start date; Www.beatthestreet.me.

The game is covid safe so we encourage players to follow government guidelines whilst playing. You can still play as part of a team though, as long as you link your card to that team when registering. This means you can walk with your own family/bubble whilst still collecting points for your team!

If you/your workplace/community or organisation would like to get involved in playing ‘Beat the Street’ or have any further questions, please get in touch with Megan (details below). Have fun!!!

Also if you would like to create a team (which players can join when they register) please send Megan the following info;
