We teach the martial art of traditional Shotokan Japanese karate which promotes kindness and consideration to others, giving our students the ability to defend themselves against aggression, but never to attack first. Always to defend is the spirit of this type of martial art of ‘fighting without fighting’.
Our style of karate (Shotokan) looks after the mind, body and character of our students, developing a balanced approach between each of them. The marital art of karate is good for all ages! The brain gets as much exercise as the body, so you will stay fit and alert both physically and mentally.
The school was established in Enfield in 1978 by professional martial arts teachers David and Lilian Alleyn together with their children Brian and Christine. David and Lilian are still very much involved in every aspect of running the school and were runners-up in the sports person/team of the year category in the 2004 Palace Gardens Pride of North London Awards.
The husband-and-wife team studied shotokan karate and self defence under the internationally renowned Japanese shotokan martial arts masters Kanazawa, Asano, Enoeda, Kato, Kawasoe, Kase, Ohta and K. Funakoshi Sensei.
