Pioneered in Manchester by Stephen Sijuwade in 2004 and in London by Krishan Wadhia, the academy runs classes for all grades of students, of all ages.
Our instructors are fully qualified and CRB checked, and have attended numerous courses and seminars in the safeguarding of children, and general health and safety disciplines.
Our instructors currently hold Dan Grades with Goju Ryu Seiwakai and continue to receive regular training with senior instructors from Gojuryu Seiwakai and Gojukai J.K.F., the Japanese Karate Federation, travelling frequently to the country to attend training camps, and acquire further expertise in the art.
The academy focuses on self-defense, fitness training and personal development. We teach in a friendly yet structured environment, which allows people of all ages to come and enjoy the benefits of martial arts. Classes place emphasis on street self-defense and are geared to enhance self-awareness, confidence, and
Our organisation currently provides classes in London and Manchester for both children and adults. For children under 13, we base the teaching on a gentle, low-key, yet disciplined format, but always keeping the element of fun.
Children will learn team work, cooperation and get the benefits of discipline and concentration at the same time. The classes are action-packed, and we run frequent competitions to engage children and encourage them in a useful, goal-oriented way.
Many children’s classes are run as part of the school curriculum, or as after-school programmes in select schools within the Manchester and London metropolis.
All classes are taught by fully-qualified instructors, and assisted by senior students. This encourages both the senior students, as well as giving something for younger students to aim for, and the approach as proved invaluable in helping to solidy a peer-bonding that makes Ho Shin Do Karate the coherent martial arts academhy it has become.
