Karateklubb Samurai-dojo (KSD) in Gothenburg, Sweden, was started in 1969. KSD celebrates her 30 Years Anniversary in 1999. Let us have a quick look at the history of KSD.

1969

1977

Membership magazine (later Svenska Wadokai ) was started. The magazine has been published 4 times a year since then. In May KSD found its own Dojo (two Dojos) at Åvägen 17, 700 m2. We should never forget that quite a few members of KSD worked enthusiastically for building our new dojos.
