To begin with you dont need to buy lots of equipment, for your first few lessons just come in loose clothing thats easy to move in, we always suggest jogging bottoms and a T-Shirt.


The first session is FREE.


Once you are ready to become a member of the club then you will need to start thinking about your suit and licence. We offer a Starter Pack which includes everything you need; Club Embroidered Suit, belt, Insurance and grading record book for £40. 

Your Membership/ Licence is renewable annually at a cost of £30 every January. Your licence entitles you to take gradings and is your grading record, go to competitions, be a member of the EKF (English Karate Federation, NGB) and is also your insurance. 


We have tried to make karate as accessible as possible by giving you multiple ways to pay. You can do any of the following; Pay as you go (daily or weekly) or paying monthly.

When you are ready for your next belt you will be invited for a grading, a physical examination of everything you have been practising in lessons. Upon passing your grading you will receive a handwritten certificate that has your name written in Japanese and your new belt! 

Each grading gets harder and takes more time to access and for senior grades will have additional examiners and external examiners.
