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.
Elitez Junior classes are carefully designed to integrate traditional karate knowledge with self- defense in order to make the sessions interesting as well as helpful in today’s society. In order to achieve the ultimate black belt – students have to pass challenging and comprehensive gradings which are specifically designed for each level and belt.
The Elitez Adults & Family sessions are taught by senior qualified instructors whom have over 100 years combined experience in martial arts.
