At Karate Hull we practice a style of karate called Shukokai. As a club we are well established in East Yorkshire and Humberside.
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. From as young as 5 and our eldest student at 59 theres no excuse not to give us a go!
The first lesson is free, you don't need any special equipment to start with, just bring yourself and some loose fitting clothing (track-suit) and give it a go.
Lessons are open to beginners and experienced students. For more information on the location and session times click here.

A major part of Karate as in many martial arts is Kata. Kata is a Japanese word for describing detailed choreographed patterns of movements against 'imaginary opponents'. These movements can then be used in segments or as a whole for self defense if ever needed.
Karate Hull understands the time limits and restraints of the modern world so has produced a collection of Kata videos that are an ideal reference and training aid, which as a member are free to access in the menbers area .
Sensei Ashley Harrison 4th Dan and Sensei Chris Brookes 5th Dan demonstrates Katas from front and rear angles at both slow and normal speeds. There is also a bunkai (real opponents)application section for every Kata.
