Azami Karate Group was founded on Saturday 24th February 1990 by Senior Instructor Peter Rogers 7th Dan at Broxburn Sports Centre, a venue we still teach in to this day. The group takes its name from the Japanese translation of ‘thistle’.
We currently teach classes at venues in Broxburn, Pumpherston and Winchburgh, as well as offering individual or small group lessons in our private dojo in Winchburgh.
The group is assisted by Instructor Lisa Scott 6th Dan who was a founder member of the group.
