Jacksons Lane Shotokan Karate Club
First trial session is FREE, come and join in as a tester.
Then once you've decided if it's for you:
Seniors - Just £3
Juniors - Just £2
Question: Why so reasonable?
Answer: This is a not-for-profit community club and none of the instructors are paid for instructing. The entire focus is on excellence, and giving back to the community of Hazel Grove and Stockport. The fees cover the cost of the gym and the adminstration, licences, insurance etc. that's how the fees are so low.
Question: So where does the money go?
Answer: Club fees go on renting the dojo and on fully insuring the instructors.
Question: Are £10/hour clubs better?
Answer: Definitely not, here's the facts: Sensei Robins is 5th Dan, Sensei Boothby is 4th Dan and Sensei Cookson is 1st Dan. Between them, they have over 80 years of Karate experience and they run the club purely for the love of Shotokan Karate. They focus on maintaining the highest traditions of Shotokan, not on earning a living from it. All other instructors are at least Dan grade and NOBODY makes any money out of it. Chasing profits can distort the ultimate values and performance of a club. This just does not happen at Jacksons Lane Karate Club so Here you will not be pressured into grading before you are ready - guaranteed, some clubs will do this just to take a grading fee off you.
Jacksons Lane will never be a rich club, but Shotokan is all the richer for clubs like Jacksons Lane Shotokan Karate.
