Karate for Teens
Karate is the ideal sport for teenagers for building self-confidence, fitness, flexibility, discipline, co-ordination, and courtesy, while learning basic self-defence skills.
Karate for Kids
Karate offers a coloured belt system where all students start at White belt and work up through different colours starting with White belt to and finally, Black belt. This serves not only to measure a child’s progress but also provides a journey to embark on. Children are encouraged to set goals for these belts, which teaches them life skills of setting a target and working towards achieving it.
Sensei Andy Sherry 9dan is the Chief Instructor of the KUGB and also the KUGB England Senior Squad Coach. It is also important to remember that he was an outstanding competitor. He was the KUGB's first Kata Champion in 1967, and the next year, 1968, he became the first Grand Champion by winning both the Kata and Kumite events. This was the start of a now legendary run of successes in National and International Championships. He first won the EAKF European Kumite title in 1968, and then went on to win other Individual European Championship titles and countless team events as a member of British and England teams. Sensei Sherry is highly regarded worldwide and we are privileged to be hosting him.
