England Karate Kan has been a part of Karate since 2003 from it's humble beginnings as a small club with a handful of students to the Association it is today. As a growing club, we produced many champions on the National Competition Circuit, some of which went on to compete Internationally and even so far as to represent England in the World Championships.

Charlotte's Story

Charlotte, 2nd Dan, World Champion, 2016

Charlotte, 2nd Dan, World Champion, 2016

I started training with EKK Association aged 10, after my younger brother  took up karate. It looked like fun, so I persuaded my Mum to let me join too. I took to it really quickly, and was soon asked to join the competition squad as an Orange belt. Karate has helped my confidence and co-ordination, as well as keeping me fit, and introducing me to some great friends. Read More >


Pershia's Story

Pershia, 1st Dan, World Championship, 2016

My name is Pershia and I have been a member of EKK since 2007.  Being part of EKK it brought to my life many challenges, breakthroughs and setbacks. I have joined the National EKK Squad where I have won many awards. The one I am especially proud of is the World Championships in Dublin 2016 where we came second in Team Kata. In my opinion EKK is an amazing club and I am really enjoying to being a part of it.

This is a wonderfully warm encouraging and aspiring karate club who I have recommended to many already. All 3 of my sons have trained from the age of 6 to now 13 years old. Initially, we enrolled them starting primary school to help with skills such as listening and following instructions in a larger group as well as physical skills such as coordination and core strength, etc. Little did we know that 7 years later all 3 boys would be such enthusiastic avid members of the EKK family and have all developed so much more than personal fitness and self defence. As well as having fun, they have taken on board values such as discipline, perseverance and confidence translating to all areas of child’s development and life. Such a great club that I am thinking of joining the adult classes too! Thank you Enzo, Sara and all the senses for everything over the years and many more to come hopefully!

The first day Shalanee started, she cried because she felt the odd one out without her Gi. However within minutes, that was it, she was part of England Karate Kan family. What I particularly like is the instructors are fun but serious and firm, a good combination for children to learn. She started at 6 years old, 2 years gone she is a purple and black belt and in the kumuti squad. I’ve watched Shalanee open up in her class into a little danger mouse fighter, and learning karate, building her confidence, self control, discipline and respect. You clearly see the difference as the children progress. Her Sensei, Enzo, is always watching his children and there is no room for nonsense.
