        I have two daughters who have been doing karate, my eldest five years and the youngest two years. They both enjoy it very much. Its a fantastic sport which not only keeps them fit but also teaches dicipline.

The club is run by Sensei’s Paul & Shirley who both give 100% commitment into teaching the students. My eldest has taken part in several competitions and won medals which really helps in giving confidence in herself.

Shinken Dojo is a very friendly club and all the students get along. Its a fantastic club/sport for any child.


        My 5 year old son and I started Karate at Shinken Dojo. What sets this club apart from others is the friendly instructors and sense of community. There is, for me, the perfect balance between fun and discipline.

         I have two girls both of which really enjoy coming to karate. They have both taken part in lots of competitions and have won lots of medals, my eldest daughter has also been picked for the English Karate Squad and has represented England twice. They both train twice a week and work really hard. Sensei Paul & Shirley both take the class and give 100% to the students making sure they enjoy the class as well as gaining karate skills, keeping fit and gaining confidence.

All the students get on with each other and are very friendly.

I have, and would, recommend Shinken Dojo for any child.
