Start Your Karate Journey Today!

Welcome to Seiken Ryu Karate Association. Here, we teach Shukokai Karate - a traditional style of martial arts, to all ages and sporting abilities.  

Get in touch with us today and find out more about our friendly and sociable Karate Club. 


All instructors are trained up to at least coaching level 1, DBS checked and hold full insurance. 

Family fun, fitness, improves self-confidence and discipline. 

Biggest karate association in the North East of England.

 IMPORTANT: Please read below about our latest COVID-19 precautions we are taking and the virtual training sessions we are providing during this time.  



To all in the Seikenryu community, as you will be aware the government is now enforcing social distancing and as a responsible organisation we are adhering to the advice to reduce contact.  Consequently there will be no classes or face to face training until further notice.

In order to continue our karate training we have set up a number of virtual training sessions, details of which are below.  These sessions are run using the Zoom Meeting app, to download the app please click on this link.

If you do attend any of our virtual training sessions we ask that you make a monthly donation of whatever you can afford in order to support those of our instructors that are fully self employed and currently ineligible for government support. Please send your donation by BACS to 77-20-39, 15092768.

For those that would prefer something more personal we can also use Zoom for 30 minute one to one, or family sessions, these will be £10. Contact your instructor to arrange a session.

I’m the mean time I would like to thank all of our students, parents and instructors for their incredible spirit and support during this challenging time and wish you all well in the coming weeks.

Stay safe, stay at home and hope to see you online.

Chris Yates. 
Chief instructor
