Welcome

to the York Elite Karate Club...


Rob Profile D Feb13Re-launched in October 2011 under Chief Instructor Rob McCartney, York Elite Karate carries on a rich tradition of Karate training in York extending over more than 20 years. York Elite is based at a purpose built dojo in Osbaldwick York, built over two levels, which offers first class facilities for training.

Our Instructors have enhanced DBS (CRB) checked status. Very much a family club with members ranging from 6 to 60, all of our Instructors and most of our parent members have children who train regularly with them at the club. We strongly believe in providing quality instruction in all aspects of Karate, including the traditional and sport forms, to equip our students with true martial spirit building respect, discipline, focus, physical fitness and most importantly the ability to have some fun and form new friendships while training.

York Elite is affiliated to the Karate Union of Great Britain, the largest Shotokan Karate association in the UK with over 300 clubs nationally and in excess of 7,000 members. Our affiliation with the KUGB allows members to access the very best Karate instructors in the country and we have regular guest instructors from the KUGB and other Associations to help develop our skills. The quality of our Karate Instruction is demonstrated through the incredible success of our members at regional and national competitions, with many national champions at all ages. In addition we currently have a number of members who represent England at International level in both Kata and Kumite.

We run a number of different classes during the week, as well as providing one to one private classes, to cater for all ages and levels of experience. We also provide regular club gradings every three months to mark your progress in Karate. Whether you are new to Shotokan Karate, or wish to continue to develop your Karate training, you will find a warm welcome at York Elite. We look forward to seeing you at the dojo.
