JAPAN TOUR 2024

July/Aug 2020

As the 2020 Japan tour didn't go ahead because of covid, we are now planning a tour in the Summer of 2024. At this stage I just need to know who is interested. Involves travelling around mainland Japan and a stop over in Okinawa for some training in traditional karate dojo.

Sad passing of Leicester Karate Clubs former teacher

24th January 2021

It is with sadness that the clubs former karate teacher in the 70's and early 80's has passed away at the age of 72 after battling lung cancer. He was inspirational for a large group of seniors in Leicester and beyond who still carry the karate torch through his teaching. A physically demanding instructor who was dedicated to his art for over 50yrs. God bless Tony.
