SAME CLUB, SAME VENUE, NEW NAME... WELCOME TO IKK WHITSTABLE!
IKK Whitstable is a family friendly local karate club where we offer two classes every Tuesday and Thursday and a circuit training and fitness session on Sunday mornings.
Our club is based at MAS Martial Arts Studio, a specialist facility based on the John Wilson Business Estate in Whitstable. We have used the Studio as our dojo since December 2012 and since then it's been our permanent home.
IKK Whitstable has four instructors. Our chief instructor, Sensei Russell Wilson, has gained a wealth of knowledge in martial arts during a 35 year career. Our junior instructors, Senpai Norma, Senpai Kevin and Senpai Mel, have a total of 24 years experience in Kyokushin Karate and all began their karate journey with International Karate. Though all specialists in different fields, our instructors all share a common interest in nurturing and developing young students potential.
IKK Whitstable is licensed under International Karate. IKK was established in 1996 by Kancho Paul Sarginson and the organisation prides itself on delivering the highest standard of karate and martial arts teaching. The IKK gives all students and instructors as many opportunities in their Martial Arts journey and regularly holds events such as:
- Knockdown Tournaments (full contact)
- Clicker Tournaments (points based non-contact fighting)
- Kata Competitions (individual technique competition)
- IKK Summer Camp
- High grade classes
