The Shushinkai karate school practices the Shito-Kai Shito-Ryu system of Karate-Do in the Worcestershire and Herefordshire area. Our classes are friendly and informative covering all aspects of karate training including, kata with full application, Kumite, and self defence. We have a structured belt and exam system that takes the student progressively towards black belt and beyond.As well as normal karate training we also have a regional tournament squad that takes part in national and international tournaments, The school is recognised as an official representative of The Federation of Karate-Do Shito-Kai Murayama WSKF,
Shushinkai Midlands also runs a monthly Kobudo class where we practice the traditional Okinawan weapons such as Bo, Tonfa, Nunchaku, Kama & Sai as well as Jo-Do.
This fascinating ancient system of self defence including wrist locking, pressure points & arm locks plays an important role in the understanding of our karate system and we are fortunate indeed to have the guidance of our Sensei Kunio Murayama (See Instructors Page) one of the few remaining people with an extensive knowledge of this art,
