About us
We teach traditional Okinawa Shorin Ryu Karate & Kobudo every week at Pitsea Leisure Centre, Essex. Get fit, improve flexibility, build confidence, learn self defence and an ancient Martial Art created in Okinawa, Japan.
We pride ourselves in having a truly in depth knowledge of both the martial arts and modern teaching methods. The teachers at the school are fully qualified and all of our black belts are registered with the Okinawa Karatedo Shorinryu Ryukyukan Karate Kobudo Federation, Okinawa, Japan. We are committed to helping you reach black belt excellence, we will do everything in our power to assist and encourage you if you too are committed to this goal.
From years of experience we know that the best way to get someone to black belt status is to build up a series of attainable short-term goals. These are the various belt promotions or gradings you will take on your journey towards your black belt. Although the gap between a beginner and black belt can feel immense, the jump to your first belt (yellow) is a realistic goal of around 12 weeks. By constantly setting and reaching these smaller goals we develop as martial artists and as human beings.
The style of karate that we practice is Shorin-ryu, which is a traditional style from Okinawa, the birthplace of Karate. Students are taught the self protection skills of Karate in an atmosphere of mutual respect, discipline, and etiquette. We encourage our students to have an open mind to all martial arts and we provide training courses with world class teachers from other martial arts such as, Ju-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Aikido, etc.
The Matsuri School continues to grow, mainly through the recommendation of our members. We have seen many of our students progress from child to adult, from beginner to teacher and in some cases an entire family to black belt.
New students are always welcome to join our school.
