Aberdeen Bushido Karate Club
Aberdeen Bushido, the North East of Scotlands premier Karate club, exists to teach and promote traditional Japanese Shotokan Karate. The club founder, Gordon Farquhar (5th Dan) was firmly rooted in traditional Shotokan Karate having trained diligently in the art for over 35 years, training with karate legends such as Master Kanazawa, Hanshi Asano, the late Hanshi Enoeda plus many many more.
