Shorinjiryu Renshinkan Karatedo England launches a 6 week karate course for teens (from 13 years) and adults.

Karatedo is not merely a sport focusing on competition and winning, it is a serious art that promotes internal development.  Core to our teaching are the values of discipline, commitment, hard work, honesty and integrity.

The launch of the Karate class coincides with the 30th Anniversary of training by Julia Turley. Many thousands of young people and adults have benefited from Julia’s commitment to this traditional form of Karate which puts a focus on the 3 K’s – Kihon basics, Kata forms and Kumite free sparring.

Sensei Julia explained: “Renshinkan Karatedo provides a positive framework for our students, giving them confidence, self awareness and fitness. Excellence drives us forward alongside care, compassion and sensitivity.

“Core to our teaching are the values of discipline, commitment, hard work, honesty and integrity. These valuable life skills are taught in a safe and friendly environment where we can all flourish. Our classes are also about forging friendships; which for many will last a lifetime.

“Karatedo is not merely a sport focusing on competition and winning.  It is a serious art that promotes internal development.  A sound body is the basic element required to cultivate a sound spirit.”

Stephanie, a former student and 1st Dan from Haywards Heath said: “Julia Turley has always been and still is, one of the most inspirational people in my life. Karate and Julia have given me the inner strength, courage and discipline I use every day to make it possible for me to casually move to other countries and do the things I’m absolutely petrified of doing. So for all those things, and all the amazing experiences I’ve had, I just want to say thank you. I learnt more from karate than I fully realised at the time, and I continue to live with those lessons inside me.”

If you would like to be inspired like Stephanie, there are classes held across Mid Sussex, with specific classes aimed at young people, adults or family groups. There is even a class for women only. Regular classes are held at The Triangle – Burgess Hill, The Dolphin Centre – Haywards Heath and community halls. Other locations for new classes for youngsters starting this September include Burgess Hill School for Girls and West Hoathly Primary School.

The course begins on Wednesday 18th September from 7.30pm-8.30pm at The Dolphin Centre, Pasture Hill Road, Haywards Heath, RH16 1LY. This will be followed by the establishment of a regular session (7.30pm – 8.45pm) throughout the year.
