How did Bpsjkarate start ? Our club photos
SJK is a family run club opened in 1978 by Dave and Lilian Alleyn (RIP) taught for many years with the help of their children Christine and Brian.
Bpsjkarate started with Sensei Christine who combined SJK and BPK karate clubs to form BPSJK in memory of her parents. She taught her children, Debbie and Melissa, karate from a young age, and they now help run the club.
BPSJK is highly regarded as a great club.
Our karate club has dedicated long-term students like Zina and Nick who assist in teaching classes.
Dave Sempai, Debbie Sensei (2nd Dan), and Christine Shihan work together behind the scenes to ensure the smooth operation of the Bpsjkarate club.
Our teachers have several years of experience and treat our students like family. Christine, with 48 years of dedication to Shotokan Karate, is a 6th Dan Shihan.
We teach Karate in North London & Hertfordshire and offer training for both children and adults.
We have a proven track record of nurturing students who have excelled in various fields, including higher education.
Additionally, they specialize in providing karate lessons to children with mild disabilities. Our main instructors have done courses and are Certified for “Aiming high for disabled children course” including young people with Autism spectrum disorders.

We treat everyone with the same respect that we expect to receive in return. Everybody is welcome to join us, young, old, disabled, any race and any sex!
One of the main rules is to never use Karate on anyone outside of the class unless you are being attacked first – Karate is for Self Defence only!
The style of Karate we teach is Shotokan Karate and we start from as young as 3 years old and take anyone of any age – even families! You can watch a small clip from Shihan Christine’s 2013 Shotokan Karate course .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwXro_eBRoo
