At Kanku Karate we practice a traditional style of Karate called Shotokan.  This is the oldest style of Japanese Karate and our instructors have studied under the top Karate masters in the world.  True Karate has been referred to as Moving Zen indcating its physical, mental and spiritual aspects.

The Club was established almost 50 years ago and the Chief Instructor, Sensei Gerry Breeze, 9th Dan, has been instructing here continuously for that period.

Our aim is to offer a high level of disciplined technical instruction, combined with Japanese 'fighting spirit', so that each of us can achieve to our maximum.  The club instructors all place great emphasis on their own training and development so that the club never stands still.

We hold regular training sessions with other clubs; gradings every three months where students take tests to progress through the belt system, culminating in obtaining 1st Dan when the black belt is awarded.  Club members enter competitions when they are ready to try their hand in a competative environment.
