Welcome to
Hull Shukokai Karate

Who Are We?

We are Hull & East Yorkshire's Premier Shukokai karate organisation. We have been delivering excellence in karate since 1972. With over 100 years karate experience our instructors under the leadership and guidance of our Chief Instructor Tony Grainger 7th Dan and SSKU (UK) Assistant Chief Instructor, we have produced numerous champions in both kata and kumite.

Taking our learning from U.K. Chief Instructor Denis Casey 8th Dan & our World Chief Instructor 10th Dan, Yamada Haruyoshi, we deliver our excellence using traditional Japanese methods.

Our teachings provide our students with an excellent proven system of self defence. Also in our encouraging and supportive, progressive and FUN environment you will also improve your physical fitness, mental strength and focus, self-discipline, self-respect, and respect for others. Please see our classes page to find out some of the ways in which you can achieve all of these personal improvements and more...
