We're Moving...............


Our last ever class at our dojo in Osbaladwick is on Wednesday 26th June and we know it will be really sad to move on. We've had some fantastic karate, welcomed friends and guest instructors over the years and we'll leave to start the next chapter for the club with some great memories.

For the time being we are relocating to Burnholme Community Hub on a Monday night at 7pm and Saturday morning at 10am . We will also have a class on Wednesday evenings at 7pm at Archbishop Holgate School.
The new classes will start from 01st July and we'll post more detail nearer the time.
Thanks to everyone who's been involved with the dojo in Bentley Park over the years and we hope to see as many of you as possible at training.


Black Belt Success for York Elite

England Junior Squad 2019

Congratulations to Sam Blundell and Constantino Alvarez-Odell for being selected to the 2019 England Junior Kumite Squad. Everyone at the club is proud of your achievement and wishes you great success in the year ahead. Oss!!


Timetable Changes from January 2019

To accommodate the growing number of senior grades at the club we have made some amendments to our weekly class timetable. The changes will also provide a better structure for beginners and junior grades to work together through the KUGB grading syllabus in advance of our club gradings. Please check out the Class Times on the website via the link at the top of the page for more details.

The class times also accommodate the Elite Kumite Competition Squad class which is held on the 3rd Saturday of each Month from 10am to 12pm. The class will be run by Sensei Ryan Tucker 4th Dan KUGB, captain of the England Senior Team and Chief Instructor of Leeds Shotokan Karate Club. It will include sqaud selected members from LSKC as well as York Elite. Attendance is by invitation only and if members want to participate they must seek permision from Sensei Rob McCartney in advance.  


 Adults Only Class - Thursday Evenings

We would also remind you of our Adults Only Evening Class on Thursdays at 7pm. The class is aimed at parents and adult members who either fancy starting karate or improving their techniques. The class will be structured so all levels can benefit and it will include fitness and conditioning exercise more suited to adults than in an all-age class. For more information please ask at the dojo.
