About us

Our Club

We are a friendly, informal and inclusive club. We welcome you to come along and meet us, watch how we train and join in!


Sensei Mick Ryde (5th Dan) has run our club for forty years. His dedication has turned it into one of the largest and most successful martial arts clubs in the region.
