Shimbun – the Official Magazine of GKR Karate

Shimbun – the official magazine of GKR Karate – showcases the successes of our sensei and students, and features an engaging mix of news, training tips and exclusive interviews in each edition.

Published quarterly and professionally produced by an award-winning editorial team, the title champions all that is great about our club and can be enjoyed in print or digitally.

Issue 2 of Shimbun includes a round-up of the action from the World Cup; a “bow in” from Kancho Robert Sullivan; a referee’s eye view of tournament kumite and an exclusive interview with two-time boxing world champion Amir Khan.
