Stevenage Karate Club provides regular training sessions with experienced, qualified instructors in a safe environment. All instructors and coaches teaching at the Stevenage clubs have to obtain an Enhanced Certificate from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), are fully insured and qualified to teach.


We welcome new students from the age of 6 and have a diverse group of children, teenagers and adults with mixed abilities attending every week.  The club encourages its students to train hard and to attend extra courses throughout the year, whenever possible.


Students are asked to arrive early ready to start training at the allotted time.


The club diary section contains further details of local and/or national courses and events dedicated to additional training that students might possibly want to go to.



What people say about us...

Through karate our son is learning to focus and train, to follow and respect his instructors and gain physical skills that make him stronger, more confident and able to look after himself.
We feel part of a family orientated club, where students are encouraged to progress and have fun at the same time.

Watching new students develop from nervous to confident as they realise their abilities is priceless. This club has been going since 1979 and is full of confident students, new and old, sharing their learning with friends.
