Events Calendar 2020

In addition to our regular and kids’ classes five days each week, Shiranamikai organises many other events throughout the year, like our popular five-day summer camp at the beginning of August, regular visits by the association’s Chief Instructor, Ohta Yoshinobu 7th Dan and internal kyu gradings.

Our affiliation with The Japan Karate Association in England affords further opportunities, from competitions to international training camps and expert tuition by guest instructors from The Japan Karate Association’s Headquarters in Tokyo. These are all excellent ways to supplement regular training and are highly recommended.
