GKR Karate UK was established in 1994. We have over 1,000 classes running across the UK with a membership base of over 15,000 students.
GKR is one of the largest martial arts organisations in the UK, with dojo’s in most major cities across the UK. Most locations are within 10-15 minutes of each other, thereby catering for classes 7 days per week. GKR classes are suitable for all ages (5 yrs and up), and we also run specialised kids only classes in many locations.
There are 36 regions throughout the UK. Each region is managed and operated by a qualified Regional Manager. Their role is to oversee both the karate training and business development within their region.
The UK’s overall karate and club development is overseen by 4 Senior Instructors / Zone Directors, who ensure the professionalism and quality of standard remains high in all areas of the organisation.
