About Us


Chez SHINBOKU, nous comprenons et encourageons tous les aspects du karaté traditionnel et moderne. Si la pratique du karaté doit être esthétique, elle doit aussi avoir du « sens ». En d'autres termes , il doit avoir la priorité d'avoir un « effet d'impact » - il doit fonctionner.


Notre approche est basée sur le karaté au cœur, appréciant la grande base qu'il nous a donnée, et sur laquelle, nous construisons nos propres systèmes uniques d'autodéfense et de combat pour répondre à tous les niveaux et intérêts.  


Il n'est pas surprenant que notre programme couvre largement les méthodes combatives suivantes ; techniques de frappe, grappling, serrures articulaires, points de pression, étranglements et étranglements, lancers et démontages, techniques de combat au sol, couteaux et autres armes couramment utilisées.  


Nos cours sont utiles, amusants et enseignés par des experts.

I have trained at several different karate clubs in London and can genuinely say that Shinboku is the best. It combines great teaching with a supportive and encouraging atmosphere for people at all levels. Beginners are always welcome and get integrated into the classes really well. It's accepted that people will progress at their own pace. We're really lucky to have several excellent black belts as teachers, all of whom have different specialties and teaching styles. Our club has a number of different locations and times so you can train as suits you. And it's very cheap! This club really is the best of the best

The thing I learned from Shinboku is not to be scared, to try & move no matter what age you are. Before I started I was too worried to fall over and hurt myself but as I progressed, I began to feel comfortable and was able to do the thing that I thought I never could do. One of the things that makes Shinboku unique is that they don't teach you bad habits , and they help build your confidence, gradullay. This club teaches you to condition yourself mentally and physically so you're able to walk away with confidence. The other thing about this club it doesn’t just make you Strong and Healthy, but it also helps you deal with personal life such as work and how to be successful in your job or giving you advice when things dont turn out as you expect it. Karate is not a race and you learn at your own pace. My advice is keep trying and you eventually find the path to achieve your goal.

I started at karate Shinboku by chance after finding their website on internet. I found a very friendly group of people that have welcomed me since the very beginning. The instructors are very good at teaching the principles of karate and the whole discipline helps you boost your confidence and focus. Definitely good for me :)

Anna, Yellow Belt

Before I joined Shinboku I had never done any martial arts in my life, and thought sports weren't really for me. But after the first class I was hooked - the instructors adapted their training to each individual's skill-set or experience, and created an incredibly welcoming atmosphere. After training for a few years I felt much stronger, capable, and confident, having learnt to push myself and perform in public. I had also grown to know the most amazing people in London - as likely to show you how to do a flying kick as challenge you to a game of beer pong!

The karate Shinboku club is a place for training hard and fun. You learn the traditional karate (kata, Kumite, Kihon and Bunkai), how to defend yourself (street safe), very important for everyone, especially girls and bonus you get to socialize with amazing people, from all kinds of backgrounds. You will sweat, get stronger, resilient and confident. The instructors are all well trained and they understand how to push you towards your full potential. Join the Shinboku family, it is more than just a Karate club, here you can get fit, healthy and also make friends for life!

Misho, Red Belt

I joined Shinboku following a 14-year-long "karateless" period. I was instantly welcomed by an awesome group of dedicated, friendly and supportive people. The instructors, in particular, are simply outstanding in their teaching efforts, guidance and support. They are always committed and passionate and effectively complement each other. The other aspect that really makes Shinboku stand out as a club is the abundance of "topics" covered during the sessions - namely, traditional karate, but also self-defence, ground work, hanbo and other practical real-life applications. For me, personally, the karate sessions have been instrumental in catalysing the improvement of my self-discipline, focus and confidence as well as my physical and mental health. Join the Shinboku family and embark on a life-altering journey full of a variety of challenges and rewards and, of course, loads of great friends to share them with!
