Canterbury Karate & Martial Arts Club

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.

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, Shihan Amy, Senpai John, Senpai Brendon, and Senpai Nicoletta

There are two classes a week. Thursday evening is at the Barton Manor School and Sunday morning is at the Canterbury College Sports Hall.

The Barton Manor School is a stunning new school and we are based in the dance studio. There are changing facilities and good parking 

Canterbury college 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 at a small fee.

Both clubs 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.
