About Us

Shinkukai Karate is a breakaway style from the great Kyokushin Schools founded and developed in Japan by Kancho Masutatsu Oyama (10th Dan). Former Kyokushin exponents Shihan Garry Pickford, and Shihan Neil Harrison co-founded Shinkukai Karate in 1980, we are one of the regions longest established martial arts schools. The word Shinkukai simply means truth (shinku) and togetherness (kai)


Our co-founders Shihan Garry Pickford, and Shihan Neil Harrison, are joined by their former students, Sensei Chris Burgess, Sensei Paul Gleeson, Sensei Sarah Robinson, Sensei James Clark, and Sensei Jon Holland to bring together a vast wealth of experience and skill in our team of instructors.
