  • Senjokai is an awesome club to be part of. My daughter has been a member for just over a year now and is loving every minute of it. The coaches are all encouraging and there a great community feel. All levels of karate are supported from classes for recreation to competing at a national and international level. There's no better place to be

  • My 6 year old son has been going to Senjokai since the beginning of 2022. He absolutely loves the class and trainers. His confidence has grown and his ability to perform some of the rooms is amazing. The trainers also install great values on the kids with regard to things like honest, respect, bravery etc. Lovely to see the trainers having a real passion for what they teach. Thank you

  • Senjokai Karate Academy has supported me to get fitter, gain skills and confidence in martial arts as well has create a supportive inclusive environment to develop as an adult student of karate.
    The attention to detail, adherence to traditional karate values while maintaining a modern understanding of sports science and development of the sport is outstanding.

  • I joined Senjokai last year after a 16 year break from karate. My confidence had taken a big hit in that time however as soon as I started training with Liam Sensei I knew I was in the right place to get that confidence back and to get hooked on karate all over again. It's a safe, inclusive place to train - training to high standards without feeling judged if you make a mistake makes it a dojo you really want to belong to. Can highly recommend Senjokai Karate Academy for all ages and abilities.

  • My Son and Daughter both attended Senjokai Karate, they have steadily worked their way through grading, gaining belts and enthusiasm. Sensie Craig is great with them encouraging and supporting them through grading and classes. It really is a wonderful inclusive club that supports all children to get the best out if them and insures they enjoy each new level and experience. Throughout lockdown and the covid pandemic they have provided my kids with support and online lessons, party's, gaming nights giving kids a chance to socialise and remain part if the team. I can't praise them highly enough for all the hard work and dedication they have shown my family.

  • Senjokai are making a massive difference. As a beginner in my mid 40s and carrying some extra timber, I was a little nervous. I have been made to feel welcome by the team and other students. I can feel my fitness improving and I'm learning a new and useful skill. This is more like a family than a karate club.

  • I am very thankful to have found this club/ dojo.
    Firstly, Great Teacher makes Great students .. Sensei Liam is an inspiring teacher and he imparts much more than martial arts into the growing minds ..children learn focus, self discipline, confidence , commitment and team spirit. The well organised belt tests help them to understand cause effect principle. Children enjoy the classes and look forward to more . As a parent, I can definitely say that senjokai academy plays an important role in building more responsible little humans.
