The Club

The London branch of Daigaku Karate Kai was started by Shihan Gavin Mulholland (7th Dan) in the late 80s and is now one of the strongest karate clubs in the UK.

We practise Okinawan Goju Ryu - a practical karate style which places heavy emphasis on close-quarter effectiveness. Training is combat-orientated rather than for sport or competition fighting, which require different skills and mindset.

Classes are open to all adults (no children). We welcome beginners and practitioners from other styles at every level. The club has a good mix of men and women training regularly.
