Seibukan UK dojo classes have been suspended from 19 March until further notice.
The advise is to reduce social contact as much as possible so as to slow down the spread of the virus.
Online lessons are shortly being trialled using Zoom including a virtual Izukaya – online dojo pub
We hope all students, instructors and their families stay safe in these difficult times ahead.
Any updates will be posted here.
Seibukan UK practices and studies ‘Yonemoto Ha, Goju Ryu Karate‘, the teachings of Master Kiyoshi Yonemoto a lineage master of Japanese Hard & Soft Karate.
Yonemoto Sensei has dedicated his life to studying, teaching & sharing his knowledge of Goju Karate. The essence of Yonemoto Ha (style) karate is to be natural, always keep an enquiring mind and seek to reach a higher level of understanding and ability.
The headquaters of Yonemoto Sensei is the Seibukan Honbu dojo, located in Tokyo Japan. Sensei Mike Clark is a direct student and ‘Bucho‘ or representative of Master Yonemoto and the Sebukan Honbu dojo.
The teaching of Seibukan UK embodies the underlying concept of forging a strong inner spirit, having a friendly heart and keeping an enquiring mind.
Traveling to Japan over the last 25 years with senior instructors Sensei Terry Foster, Sensei Carl Regular and Sensei Kevin Williams to study with Master Yonemoto continues to bring new lessons and insights.
There is a commuity school at the Hilldene Community Centre, West End for children and adult beginers as well as intermediate grades. Intermediate and senior grades are also taught at the private dojo (schools) of our teachers.
Black belts and teachers receive ongoing and in depth tuition at the Sodokan Dojo.
We share with students and teachers from other schools who have a good heart and genuine desire to learn. In this way there are opportunities to continue to develop and learn for those who are still searching.
