Timetable Changes from January 2018

For 2018 we have amended our weekly class schedule to accommodate a new Elite Kumite Competition Squad class which will be held on the 3rd Saturday of each Month from 10am to 12pm. The class will be run by Sensei Ryan Tucker, Chief Instructor of Leeds Shotokan Karate Club and 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.  

To accomodate the Squad Class a second "All Grades Class" will run at the normal time from 10am to 11am and is open to all ages.

Congratulations to the following York Elite Karate club members who have been selected to the KUGB England Kunite Squad for 2018. We look forward to following your success in 2018:

Cayleigh McCartney, James McNichol, Connor Dunckley and Constantino Alvarez-Odell.


 Adults Only Class - Thursday Evenings

We have now started an 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.
