to the official website of Sunderland Karate Central.
Whether you are an instructor or a student it is our hope that all of your goals are achieved while training with us. We train in Traditional karate and highest quality sport karate.
The club was established in 2004 by Chief Instructor Mark Williams 5th Dan, and is based in the North East of England. We are affiliated to the English Karate Organisation (a non-political association). There is no interference from anyone and no demands made of us.
All our instructors are certified and have First Aid (HSE) qualifications, are fully insured and DBS police checked. We have in place a Health and Safety Policy and a Child Protection Policy which we are very strict on. These policies are available to read at every lesson.
We are a family orientated club which caters for…
The complete novice to the experienced karateka
The young to the not-so-young
The fit and the not-so-fit
Very little ones aged from 4 yrs upwards who can come along to train and have fun
Our aim is to provide every individual with the tools and support to further their physical and mental development. We hold regular gradings.
Proud to be part of the English Karate Organisation.
Positive Family Safe Environment
"The ultimate aim of karate lies not in victory or defeat,
but in the perfection of the character of its participants."
