At Karate Hull we practice a style of karate called Shukokai. As a club we are new to Humberside but Karate Hull is a member of the Shukokai Karate Union (SKU). Which has been established in the UK since 1969.
Training at Karate Hull is a disciplined & fun environment, where as a student you can develop confidence, improved co-ordination and a greater level of personal fitness as well as learning this fascinating martial art.
The first lesson is free, you don't need any special equipment to start with, just bring yourself and some tracksuit/loose fitting clothing and give it a go.
Lessons are open to beginners and experienced students. For more information on the location and session times click here.
Sensei Ashley Harrison (3rd Dan) teaches several times a week on a Monday and on a Wednesday. Ashley has been non-stop training in Karate for over 10 years and is CRB checked, insured & a fully qualified SKU instructor. Not only does Ashley teach Karate, but he still trains regularly with chief instructor Sensei Stan Knighton and Sensei Chris Brooks whilst attending the monthly instructor’s courses run by the SKU. This keeps his martial-art skills, teaching skills & fitness level at their peak.
The SKU has produced a collection of 3 Kata DVDs which are an ideal reference and training aid.
