Welcome to ELITEZ KARATE ACADEMY!!!
We are Shotokan based, developed from various martial arts by Gichin Funakoshi and his son Gigo (Yoshitaka) Funakoshi. Gichin was born in Okinawa and is widely credited with popularizing karate through a series of public demonstrations, being one of the first and biggest styles; Shotokan is considered a traditional and influential form of karate.
All our Elitez instructors are fully qualified; CRB checked and trained black belts which have joint experience of over 100 years. Our chief instructor, Sensei Christopher Blenman has been training for over 20 years and represented the England Karate team for five years; he has won many British, European, and international titles and captained the national team.
We believe karate will teach you many vital skills: discipline, co-ordination, balance, cardio, listening, self-defence etc. The class format is set up for you to have fun, whilst working you through our syllabus to gain your BLACK BELT with Elitez Karate Academy.
At Elitez we train students as young as 3 years old, which are part of our LIL NINJAS classes. The age restriction for the class is 3 -6yrs old.
Lil’ Ninjas classes continue straight through to the JUNIOR ELITEZ, which the age restriction starts from 6 years +. We also have the ELITEZ FAMILY & ADULTS sessions where families can train together.
We welcome all ages and abilities at Elitez Karate Academy.
