Clevedon Karate Kai

Welcome to
Clevedon Karate Kai
Junzuke No Tsukkomi

We are a thriving, family-friendly karate club that has offered safe, inclusive, high-quality, low-cost training for nearly 25 years in and around Clevedon, North Somerset, UK. The club is volunteer-run and non-profit. All instructors are fully insured and DBS-checked (child protection). We offer a free introductory lesson for those new to karate.

We currently run four training sessions per week, on Friday in Clevedon, Wednesday in Tickenham, Monday in Yatton, and as the parent club of Virgin Active's Saturday morning junior club, in Bradley Stoke, Bristol. In addition, we attend courses run by other clubs, and our association, the Western Karate Union.

Whether you are looking for opportunities to compete locally, regionally, nationally and internationally, to progress through the grading system, to learn self-defence, or just for a friendly and fun workout every week, we offer something for everyone, whatever your level of ambition and ability.


The club encourages family participation. Mothers and fathers beware! We shall encourage you to join in. There are always many families with two generations training, and sometimes three! Parents who do not wish to train are welcome to stay and watch. There is usually a cup of tea or coffee on offer, and many firm friendships have been forged among our regular spectators.
