Huge part of my life growing up. So many good and positive memories. Lovely to see the club continuing its journey �
With one of, if not the highest graded instructors in Europe in the shape of Kyoshi John Richards, Zen Shin endeavours to produce quality students and instructors who know and embody all the disciplines of traditional Shotakan Karate.
Absolute respect to Master Richards and his team. My Son Phoenix-Montana has ADHD and I find that this is helping him deal with his sensory issues and anger issue's. Very friendly approach and make you feel very welcome. 1st time I met them tonight. One thing I do love is the DISCIPLINE and RESPECT! My son definitely need's this in his life! Thank you for teaching my boy. X More...

I trained with Zen Shin for almost 20 years. You learn a martial art from one of the best in the country but you are also taught self discipline, respect and overall fitness. Every grade achieved is a grade earned unlike other clubs. Thanks Sensei, Oss. More...

Zen-Shin is the best martial arts association I could possibly recommend.They offer more than the martial arts themselves they teach the history of arts and give you a new outlook on life and how live it in a peaceful calm and inspired manner.Our whole family does karate and Kyoshi Richards and Sensei Mitch have enriched all our lives in different ways.Dont think about it join and you won't look back More...
Before moving to Australia in 2006 my son ( Benjamin) and daughter ( Bethany) attended lessons at Sutto Coldfield . We found John Richards to have a true passion about the martial arts he was teaching. It was done in a proffesional way and upon meeting John for the first time w as s put at complete ease. He was pleasant, understanding and very patient and this showed throughout his immediate family who all showed the same traits. My children looked forward to all their lessons.I would recommend Zen - Shin above all others and wish John and his family all the very best and thank you.P More...
I loved my time at Zen-Shin Martial Arts Academy. I learnt many skills that I still remember today and I enjoyed the feeling of being a part of the Zen-Shin family.
Sensei John Richards is the greatest teacher anyone could ask for, with the uncanny ability to bring out the best in every student. You are taught self-disipline, respect and life skills that stay with you for many years.
I look forward to seeing Sensei and Zen-Shin again in the future. More...

Zen Shin is definitely a way of life. It builds you spiritually as well as physically. More than just a sport. It's a way of connecting to your inner self.
