Welcome to Shintai School of Shotokan Karate - a PAYG non-political club.

    New students, beginners or experienced karate-ka welcome        




    We are a traditional karate club (Shotokan school) based in Luton, Bedfordshire, England. We are affiliated to the International Association of Shotokan Karate (IASK) headed by Sensei Nicholas Adamou 9th DAN ( one of Kanazawa Kancho's most senior and respected students).

    The club is run by Sensei Iain Tyrie 6th Dan (IASK) , assisted by Lorna Tyrie 1st Dan        (Also Paul Foster 1st Kyu, Nivan Hammond 1st Kyu). 

    Also guest teaching occasionally at the St. Christopher's dojo is Sensei Jerry Moore 4th Dan ( see Instructor Profiles ).

    Sensei Steve Marriot 4th Dan (SKIIF) also regularily attends the Warden Hill dojo and helps with teaching.

    Lessons are held on

    Saturday mornings 10am to 11.30am at Warden Hill Community Association Hall,Wycombe Way, Luton, LU3 2 BW ( situated behind the Warden Tavern on the A6, New Bedford Road ).
    Adults and children (over 6 years of age) are welcome to train.
    Classes are child friendly but still teach traditional shotokan following a lineage from Kancho Hirakazu Kanazawa. Training cost - 5.00 all students (adults and children)

    Monday evening 7.30pm to 8.30.pm at St. Christophers Church Hall  (behind the Church), Felix Avenue, Round Green, Luton, LU2 7NB.  Adults and children (over 12 years of age) are welcome to train.    Training cost - 5.00 all students.   

    The club welcomes students from other associations and styles - we believe in enjoying our karate - no politics - no ego - no way/style any better (but just different!).

    You want to get fitter, more flexible, better co-ordination, less stressed, and hopefully better equiped to look after yourself - then give it a try!
