Martial Arts or Gym in Altendorf or nearby

Hi All,

I know there are 2 gyms in Altendorf but not necessarily very well equipped. Would anyone recommend a really good gym (big enough with a good variety of equipment) in nearby towns if possible?

Does anybody knows of any martial arts school here as well? I know there are plenty in Zurich but hard to find in smaller towns.

Thanks for advice.

Dear Maciej,

You're right, not so Martial Arts in this region.

The closest Dojo I know is in Wädenswil the Budo Schule Wädenswil: http://www.budoschule.ch

A Goju Ryu Karate and a Shotokan Karate Dojo are located as well in Arth Goldau which is not too close, but also not too far. The Goju Ryu Dojo has unfortunately no Web presence, but the Shotokan Dojo does: www.karate-rigi.ch

The closest Martial Art place down the lake in Zurich is probably this Karate & Selfdefense School, located right at the end of the motor way: www.shobukan.ch

Kind regards,
Kagemusha

Thanks for the info Kagemusha. I think I need to move closer to Zurich cause there is not much going on around Altendorf

There's a karate school in Rapperswil www.karate-rapperswil.ch, and several gyms although I've not used any.

Yeah, in terms of gyms I just found out that actually there are 2 quite nice gyms (just seen photos for now) in Lachen: Training Center and Activ Fitness. TC also available in Pfaffikon and Activ is planned there as well.

Also there are ads in the streets that new Cross-Fit center is to be opened on 5th of Sept in Freienbach (near Pfaffikon) if someone likes.

That's all for now from my research

Hi there,

I too hunted for good karate clubs but they are few and far between.
In my opinion, this club looks like the best bet for Shotokan :

http://www.seikukan-karate.ch

It is quite a trek however to get there.
I may look to offer a short training course here in Pfaeffikon SZ.
It would depend on how many wish to try of course and finding a suitable dojo (hall) to rent. I'm no Bruce Lee or Enoeda but have trained with some great Karateka over the years. It would certainly give people a tremendous foundation for what traditional karate (JKA Shotokan) is all about.

Let's see what the future brings! :-)

Warm regards,

Imanuel
