Sennen Karate Club

A traditional martial arts club, teaching self-defence, self-discipline and self-protection to children and adults. Students will benefit from improved fitness, flexibility and co-ordination whist building confidence and self esteem along the way.

The Sennen Karate Club was opened In August 1989 by now Cornwall Area Coach and 7th Dan Black Belt Clive Double. The club started at the Churchtown Hall but due to the hall not being available every week the club moved to its current venue at the Community Centre in 1992. In 2016 Clive handed over the day to day running of the club to Luke Jackson, a 4th Dan Black Belt. We currently run Karate classes every Friday evening and Sunday morning.

Like all MayoShinDo classes, classes at Sennen Karate Club are taught in English and run in a friendly, quiet and non-intimidating manner. All our instructors are qualified, insured and DBS checked. We welcome new members - male and female, children and adults. 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!
