Kanshin Karate is a small and friendly shotokan karate club affiliated with the KUGB, the UK’s largest karate association. Our chief instructor is sensei Neil Jerome, 5th dan. We train at the Guildford Spectrum, Mondays & Thursdays from 20:00 till 21:30, and Tuesdays from 17:00 till 18:00.
We are always open to new members, whether you’re experienced, just beginning, or coming from a different style. Feel free to come along and watch, or join in if you like. Shotokan karate is a traditional martial art and combines elements of self-defence, sports and fitness training, and the philosophy of its founder that the ultimate goal of the art of karate is not in victory or defeat, but rather in the perfection of the character of its participants.
Excellent tutor and very friendly group
My children have been attending Kanshin Karate Club for a year. We couldn't be happier. Our Sensei, Avi, goes above and beyond to help the children learn and progress. He is really approachable and dedicated. The atmosphere of the club is extremely friendly and positive. It is easy to wait for the children as the venue is very comfortable. The wider karate community is extremely welcoming and the children benefit from guest Senseis from time to time. My children are always really happy to attend their lessons and are making great progress in terms of skills, fitness and character. Overall an excellent club! More...
Super club! Fantastic teaching and friendly students.
Great small friendly club, highly recommend to all new comers that either want to socialise, keep fit or learn from an excellent teacher.
Very friendly club who pay attention to detail. Highly recommended.
Kenmei Karate, and its chief instructor Sensei Neil, inspired me to take up karate. Learning a martial art like karate requires enthusiasm and commitment - both from the student as well as the instructor. And Neil is one solid committed instructor. Absolutely dedicated to his students, always patient and always guiding us through our kumite, the kata, the bunkai, the kihon... it is an rare honour to be learning from Sensei Neil.Very highly recommended.

Most amazing club. Expert teaching from sensei neil jerome, 4th dan, KUGB england squad 2012.Fun, friendly, personal and best of all the most superb place to learn and develop your karate.
Having trained at a good number of martial arts clubs, I came across Kenmei just over a year ago, and the experience has been all positive. The instructor really knows his stuff and the other members of the club are very friendly and welcoming. Thoroughly recommended. More...
If Heineken did karate clubs it would not be half as good as Kenmei. I've trained at half a dozen KUGB clubs in Surrey and this is by far the best. Mostly because of the instructor Neil Jerome, but not least because of the members. More...
