The White Crane Karate School has been established successfully in North London for over 40 years under the direction of Steve Duffy 7th Dan Black Belt. We are the sole representitives of the World Shoseikan Karate-Do (WSK). The WSK is headed by Grandmaster Katsutoshi Ishihara 9th Dan Black Belt. Teachers from the Japan Shoseikan HQ sometimes come over to teach our junior and senior members.

The style of Karate-do taught at our school is called Gojuryu. The benefits of learning Gojuryu Karatedo are many. Through the continuous practice and development of self-defence techniques, adults can get a great mind and body exercise workout and release the stresses of daily living, whilst children can enjoy developing their confidence, discipline and co-ordination. Both senior and junior members can also participate in the sporting side of Karatedo if they wish.

Our Instructors are insured, enhanced DRB checked and first-aid trained.

Classes are friendly and well organised, so please come along and enjoy a free trial class .
