Our History

The school was established in Enfield in 1978 by professional martial arts teachers David and Lilian Alleyn together with their children Brian and Christine. Shihan Christine is now running both SJK & BPK due to David Sensei’s Illness & the passing of sensei Lilian in 2013.

We all 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.

Lilian was a 4th Dan black belt Karate Sensei.(teacher). (Unfortunately Lilian passed away in 2013).
