About us

Join the Karate club to get fit, stay safe and learn from one of the best instructors in Britain. As well as gaining fitness, skills and confidence to be able to defend yourself, you'll learn the complex art of Za-Zen meditation, focusing the mind (especially helpful around exam periods).

For 25 years the club has had the privilege of being taught by Rick Jackson (8th Dan), one of the highest grade Karateka's in the world. With our Sensei's great wealth of knowledge, over 50 years experience, you'll find no better teacher to show you the way of the warrior.  

We actively encourage complete beginners who will benefit both from our instructor and guidance from other higher graded club members. Every year we compete in BUCS alongside almost every university in the UK and we're always looking for fresh talent.
