Welcome to GKR Karate Prime
GKR Karate (Go-Kan-Ryu) brings the exciting Martial Art of karate within reach of everyone. Our classes are taught in a structured and disciplined fashion, but maintain a positive environment of encouragement and fun for all students. We cater for children 5 yrs+, teens, adults and families.
Whilst karate is a highly effective form of self-defence, our teachings also emphasise the important concepts of restraint and non-violence to all participants. Karate training builds confidence, develops self-discipline, improves fitness and places high value on personal character, respect and courtesy.
Our club has been established for over 30 years and developed thousands of highly skilled black belt students and tournament champions. GKR Karate Prime offers both children’s and adults classes 7 days a week, with many of these classes suitable for families to train together.
We believe that everybody should learn some form of self-defence these days. Our goal is to empower students with a greater sense of inner strength and personal safety, while promoting a positive mental attitude and good character.
Our online community is vast and highly supportive of all members. We encourage you to visit us on Facebook to further see what we’re all about! We hope to see you soon.
I love the discipline that karate training has given me and really enjoy competing in the tournaments! The greater GKR Karate community is so supportive and im proud to be a part of it
I'm stronger, fitter, more confident and have made so many friends in the GKR Karate community - thankyou for helping me to become the best version of myself!
I signed my children up in 2013 - and watched them from the sidelines for 2 years. After many invites from the Sensei I finally joined in and wish I started sooner. Being able to train alongside my children is something so rare in sports these days and something i'm so greatful to be able to do!
Im so greatful for the confidence and discipline that karate training has given my kids! My youngest son was extremely shy and bullied at school for it, and since beginning training 2 years ago his confidence has come along in leaps and bounds - thankyou GKR!
Training with GKR Karate changed not only my life but my families too! We are fitter, happier and even closer as a family from our training together!
