IKK Canterbury Karate and Martial Arts Club

The IKK Canterbury Karate and Martial Arts Club holds the honor of being the very first International Karate Kyokushinkai club to be opened.

Canterbury College
New Dover Road
Canterbury, Kent
Telephone:  07768 126171

Established in 1996 by Kancho Paul Sarginson, the IKK organisation was built up around the success of the Canterbury club, which is in a prime location close to many surrounding villages such as Bridge and Littlebourne.

The main instructors at the club are Kancho Paul, Shihan Russell, Senpai John, Sensei Amy, Senpai Brendon, and Nicoletta

Hosted in Canterbury colleges sports hall, the club benefits from a wooden floor and its own storage area. It is also out of Canterbury town centre and has its own car park so getting to class and parking is never an issue.

The club always gives the students an excellent work out, with the instructors making sure that everyone is both taught their techniques and has the required fitness for their grading. The club has a good turnout with students coming from all other clubs around Kent.


9am – 10/10:30am All Ages
