Our classes are currently being delivered online while we follow Gov.uk social distancing measures. Until then, let’s not forget the importance of looking after one’s mental health in these challenging times. Where possible, enjoy the fresh air and sunshine of the beautiful spring weather. Learn karate. Practise safe distancing.

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.
