About Kaizen Ryu sticky icon

Welcome to the official site of Kaizen Ryu Karate Do.

Kaizen Ryu Karate Do is a family friendly karate club with a number of dojo in the East London and Essex areas. Our aim is to make karate accessible to the general public whilst keeping the etiquette and traditions strong.

We are a traditional club that draws kata and training methods from both the Goju and Shotokan schools. There is a strong emphasis on discipline and understanding of technique with the main focus of training being kihon (basic training) and kata, which lead instinctively to self defence training.

We teach all ages from 5 years old, right up to 65. We offer children's classes for boys and girls under 13 and all ages classes geared toward adults and children who take their training even more seriously.

Like all martial arts, there are a number of benefits that come with training at Kaizen Ryu Karate. These include improved fitness, a useful knowledge of self-defence, increased self-control and discipline, and self-respect.

The Kaizen Cup Invitational is an established & popular tournament in the Southern England competition circuit, attracting top quality students from around the country to compete for the Kaizen Cup Trophy. 

Over the last 15 years the event has grown dramatically. It's a competitive, yet friendly and well run competition, using WKF rules. These bi-annual events are the perfect environment as a warm up for pre-international championships. As well as providing a competitive platform for beginners right through to black belts.

Working with Schools across Tower Hamlets


Tower Hamlets Youth Sport Foundation Partnership 2017-2018

"Providing outstanding opportunities and support for young people in Tower Hamlets to reach their potential, realise their ambitions and develop personally through sport."

We are pleased to announced that Kaizen Ryu Karate will continue to work closely with the Tower Hamlets Youth Sport Foundation to deliver a series of after-school programs across the borough schools starting this Autumn 2017.


This partnership will be a great opportunity for the club to be able to share it's vision and work with local and national partners who have similar aims for young people.

We wish the coaching team all the best on this new partnership. We also hope that the youngsters enjoy the many benefits of what martial arts has to offer.
