All of our classes are running as advertised. It’s easy to start karate, all you need is comfortable clothing that will allow free movement, and the lesson fee. Our classes are inclusive and great exercise for all ages. All of our sessions are suitable for ages 7 and above, while on Thursdays, we have a special lesson just for kids which is suitable for ages 5 upwards. Get in touch, stop by for a chat or simply join straight in with one of our training sessions!
Shiranamikai is part of one of the largest and most prestigious karate organisations in the world, The Japan Karate Association (JKA). So important is the heritage of The JKA, with its budo principles and scientific training methods centred around body mechanics, that the Government of Japan has awarded them special status unique amongst martial arts organisations.
In conjunction with the Japan Karate Association in England, we offer regular structured classes in a positive environment and provide opportunities for members to attend instructional training camps, courses, gradings and competitions, with access to world class instructors visiting from Japan and around the world.
Shiranamikai has a great track record of developing motivated and enthusiastic students so if you are considering an activity for self-defence, fitness, confidence or to retain a connection with Japan through the practise of a traditional budo martial art, we welcome you to attend our dojos.
