Fancy trying karate in Leeds ?

Bit of a change of pace to the blog this evening and I'm going to talk about our new beginners karate class in Leeds.

The club is a Shukokai karate club called : Leeds Premier Karate Club. We train twice a week at Yeadon Westfield Junior School (New Road Side, Yeadon LS19 7HW). The beginners class starts at 6.00pm on Mondays and Wednesdays and as it's only 30 minutes long it really suits kids (really any age from five or six onwards) and adults who might be reluctant to join in with more experienced grades whilst they find their feet.

We've been in Yeadon for over 15 years and the club itself has been running for well over 20 years in total. The club is run by Sensei Michael Tattersall (5th Dan) and I help help out with the beginners class (I'm a 1st Dan black belt but have been doing karate since 1980 and as well as a 1st Dan in Shukokai karate I also have a 2nd Dan from another style - I joined Leeds Premier Karate in 2010 and have been training in Shukokai for over four years now).

We've had a lot of new beginners recently and have just (literally this evening) graded six or seven beginners to yellow belt and they now move on to the main class at 6.30pm so we need another tranche of beginners now to come and fill the 6.00pm class - we've got a couple of beginners left but need more.

So this is an opportunity to join a fun but disciplined class (karate is after all a serious marital art not a knitting class!), meet some new friends, learn some self defence and get a bit fitter too.

We welcome everybody as I say from age five/six to seventy or more - if you have any questions please feel free to call me on 07792 075748 or e-mail on for a chat on what t expect.

See you there.
