Welcome To The Midlands Top Martial Arts Club.

The Zenshin Karate Club was created in January 1998 by Shidoshi Craig Decke and his wife Desma, both from Perth in Western Australia. Since then, the club has grown from strength to strength over the years and has become one of the most successful club in the Midlands and is still growing. Currently we have many classes running EVERY week! We are also one of the few clubs in the entire United Kingdom to offer classes and grading programs that are designed specifically for students of certain age levels. We have a "Little Dragon's" programme for those who are aged between 4 & 8. We have a "Young Samurai" programme for those who are aged between 9 & 13 and we also run a "Senior" programme for those aged 14+

Karate is a form of self-defence that in its modern form originates from the Okinawan islands of Japan. The true origins of Karate may in fact be in China, or indeed India where Martial Arts have existed for thousands of years. Karate is a Japanese word that means  "empty hand". Zenshin means to "progress" or to "advance" or "move forward".

The average class format involves learning basic striking, blocking & kicking techniques, as well as some grabs, holds and "streetwise" self defence. Students are also taught stances and Kata (pre-arranged sequences of movements that represent both attack and defence). Kumite (sparring) is also practised in class. This is primarily non-contact to allow the students to practise in safety and build confidence.

Over the last few years Zenshin Karate has expanded into Zenshin Martial Arts and now includes Street Defence and weapons training and offers one of the most comprehensive systems in Martial Arts in the West Midlands.
