Classes and locations

Our classes are running online and outdoors

Think not about what you can’t do, but about what you can do.

London, along with the rest of the UK, has a roadmap for easing the lockdown, which for us means:

Training sessions are conducted online and have resumed outdoors since 29th March. In line with Gov.uk Roadmap out of Lockdown: Step 1, as an organised group, we can exercise together outdoors.

Indoor group sessions may resume no earlier than 17th May in line with Gov.uk Step 3.

Gov.uk roadmap in detail…

Shiranamikai karate classes run throughout the week online and outdoors. Our in-person indoor sessions will resume in line with government guidelines. For now though, why not join us online.

Each of our sessions is suitable for children age 7+ and adults, of all levels, beginners through to advanced. We welcome new students at any time.

We also have classes specifically geared towards our younger members. We adjust the tempo and lighten the atmosphere further, and it is to these sessions that we invite your 5-year+ budding martial artist to begin their training. We lay the foundations of a lightly structured class and give them the encouragement they need to develop their confidence.

All you need for your first lesson is yourself. Comfortable clothing that will allow free range of movement such as tracksuit bottoms and a t-shirt is recommended for the first few lessons. All jewellery must be removed before the class starts. There is no rush to order a karate suit – you can do that from us at any time. Indoors, we train barefoot while outdoors you should wear trainers. A bottle of water and some fruit such as an apple or banana is ideal for after the class. Hand sanitiser and wipes are also recommended.
