Who are we ?

We are members of The British Combat Karate Association Which is a recognised reputable organisation. We practice Traditional Shotokan Karate, with our main interest in the traditional kata, application and self defence.

We also have an interest in Karate as a sport and compete in various competions. Some of our members also practice and teach judo. We are also open to interest in other forms of traditional arts.

How much does it cost?

Renshinkai and our other clubs are 'pay as you go' we dont want or need your bank details, We just need £3.50 pound per session to cover the hall hire and hard work from the student...

What age can we start training ?

We start people on their "Karate journey" from the age 8 years old... as long as they train hard and have a sensible learning manner ....

“The karate that has been introduced to Tokyo is actually just a part of the whole. The fact that those who have learnt karate there feel it only consists of kicks & punches, and that

throws &locks are only to be found in judo or jujutsu, can only be put down to a lack of understanding …

Those who are thinking of the future of karate should have an open mind and strive to study the complete art” – Kenwa Mabuni 1938
