A Karate Adventure


Imagine waking in a fresh futon, enjoying a simple breakfast and training in a pine forested valley with your own 5th dan tutor.

Accommodation, breakfast and training included, visit the Serra da Lousã region of Portugal’s interior and explore the less travelled paths to train in nature.

Let the rivers, trees and sounds sharpen your senses as we focus on the elements of practise you want. Karate, kobudo, ti – it’s up to you. After lunch, some more training and then head back to freshen up, share a meal and relax.

During your stay there will be time to reflect and contemplate, re-connect and re-charge so that you return enthused and focussed to make 2021 your best year yet.

Travel alone or with a group of up to three friends to lower the cost. Minimum stay two nights.

Come alone or with friends

Alone or with friends I can host up to three guests sharing a spacious room in dormitory style. You’ll have fresh futons, bedding and your own bathroom with shower. It’s basic but clean and comfortable with restaurants and bars nearby and the mountains just a 30 minutes walk away.

I serve breakfast from half six and depending on preferences can prepare some evening meals too (extra).

If you’re traveling alone then you also receive one complimentary shiatsu session. This is ideal at the start of your trip to dissolve the fatigue of travel and help gauge where your training might best be focussed. If you’re part of a group then shiatsu sessions can be added to your stay too.

How to get here:

Fly into Porto or Lisbon and catch a train to the historic capital of Coimbra. From there I’ll pick you up and bring you to my home in Lousã where you’ll stay as my guest.

Visitors only need to bring a few essentials as I’ll provide anything we need for training. A list of what to pack will be sent to you when we confirm.
