IKK Sandwich Karate & Martial Arts Club

Sandwich Karate & Martial Arts Club has been established for over 10 years. It was set up by Yuji Okamoto, a Kyokushinkai instructor from Japan.

Classes take place in the leisure centre studio. It is a superb training facility for karate with a sprung floor, mirrored walls and air conditioning. There are also good changing and showering facilities at the centre. The staff at the venue are first class and support the club in every way. It also has its own car park so getting to class and parking is never an issue. It is in a good location on the outskirts of Sandwich with excellent access to local areas such as Deal, Walmer, Eastry and Ash.

Class Information

Sandwich Karate & Martial Arts Club has continued to grow into a very special club. This is due to it being very well supported by all of the junior students and their families. The adult classes have developed naturally from the parents of children at the club wanting to join in. Children can then join their parents in the adult classes as they become older and more experienced.

In 2012, the Sandwich Club split. The Friday class continued at the Leisure Centre, run by Kancho Paul. In addition Senpai Ian White now holds a Tuesday class at Sandwich Technology School, which is next door.


6pm – 7pm Children from 4 to 12 years
7pm – 8.30pm Adults, 13+
