The association formed by ex-international Shihan Dennis, eighth dan and international karate referee sensei O’Brien sixth dan, have both been avid practitioners for over 40 years.
Qualified instructor Del Williams third dan and co-instructor Donna Jordan first dan, teaching at the new Long Ashton club which will commence at 6-7pm on Monday evenings and will be open to both senior and junior students from the age of six.
The demand for karate classes in the area is improving due to the fact that karate is now a GCSE subject in sport.
