Ryo Shin Kan Karate Club

ClubThe Ryo Shin Kan Karate Club was founded by Sensei Derek (Del) Charlton and has run continually since 1988.

The club provides Karate classes for teenagers and adults in Uechi Ryu Karate.

Karate is a martial art developed on the Ryukyu Islands in what is now Okinawa, Japan.

Uechi Ryu Karate is an authentic Okinawan Karate style with direct roots from China.

The style’s founder, Grand Master Kanbun Uechi, studied martial arts in China before returning to Okinawa and establishing the Karate style in the early 20th century.

Uechi Ryu Karate is an extremely effective close range fighting style principally based on the movements of 3 animals: the Tiger, the Dragon, and the Crane.

The club’s chief instructor, Sensei Del, is a very experienced martial artist with over 30 years Karate experience. Sensei Del also studied boxing and westling.

In addition to being an extremely effective method of self defense, studying Uechi Ryu Karate develops confidence, character, self-esteem and physical health.

The club is a member of the OKIKUKAI organisation in Okinawa Japan via the UK OKIKUKAI organisation.
