Children's mixed classes from 5 to 12 year olds. The Japanese believe that size of the student is unimportant, as it is spirit that must be developed and the will to concentrate. Each student is taken step by step through the basic technique of SHOTOKAN KARATE whether it is junior or senior level,training is strict and discipline is paramount, thus building a strong character within the student and respect for his fellow Karateka (student who trains in karate)

This is a list of the Japan Karate Association Senior Instructors past and present that Sensei Dennis Tilley has trained with over the years, some have gone on to form their own associations under the J.K.A. The valuable knowledge which was attained is now passed on to the students as Sensei Tilley believes that if you want to learn 'true karate' you have to train with the masters. The masters say that karate is not just a physical art but it also teaches confidence, self discipline, and most of all respect.
