Radley Karate Club

At Radley MayoShinDo Karate club, we run regular karate classes throughout the year including school holidays, with classes every Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings. All our classes are held at the Radley College Sports Centre, Radley and are open to all students over the age of 7. Karate has many benefits including confidence, self control, problem solving, balance, coordination, flexibility, discipline and respect to name a few.

Like all other MayoShinDo clubs our club is run in a friendly, quiet and non-intimidating manner. All our instructors are qualified, insured and DBS checked. MayoShinDo is great for students male and female, young and old. There is no minimum fitness requirement to start, so anyone from 6 to 70 (or more!) can learn. Our aim is to ensure all our students learn safely and learn good technique but most importantly enjoy doing it. Start at your own pace, and you will be amazed at what you can achieve!

At Radley you will be taught by Head of style and Chief Derek Collins and Deputy Head of Style Elaine Jaycock. The focus is mainly on karate and self-defence techniques, but we include judo in our classes too.

If you want to give our class a go just turn up on the night. If you have any questions then please contact us below. We look forward to seeing you soon. Your first class is free!

Learn the importance of self-defence, self-discipline, self-protection and social engagement.
