Welcome to Ronin Karate Club Seaham, we are affiliated to the Karate Union of Great Britain (KUGB) the largest, single style martial arts organisation in the country. We are a friendly, family oriented club practicing traditional Shotokan Karate at Seaham Leisure Centre and the Glebe Centre in Murton. We also have a club at Washington Leisure Centre. Our clubs provide high quality instruction for both adults and children and we have some of the most experienced instructors in the North East including Sensei John Holdsworth 6th Dan, Sensei Julie Nicholson 6th Dan and Sensei Paul Dowell 6th Dan.
Karate is a system of self-defence first developed in Okinawa and Japan which teaches people how to defend themselves using blocks, strikes and kicks. Karate is a fun, energetic way to keep fit for both adults and children. It helps develop health, fitness and well-being and our members gain a lot of confidence and satisfaction as they progress through the grades.
The Seaham Town motto "By Courage and Faith" perfectly matches the ethos we promote at our club. Walking into a karate club for the first time can be daunting and requires some courage (although we are a very friendly bunch) and taking part in gradings and competitions also takes courage. However, this develops over time and it is great to see our students grow in confidence as they progress through the grades.
Karate training also helps develop faith and belief in your own ability as well as the ability of your instructor and club mates. Our training sessions develop trust and confidence in others which again builds confidence leading to well-behaved, respectful individuals
If you are interested in Karate we have regular classes each week to suit all ages (minimum age is 6yrs) and levels of experience. We welcome new beginners as well as more advanced grades looking for high quality tuition to help them progress.
If you would like to try karate come along to one of our sessions or contact Paul on 07757971662
