Loughton Karate Club

Welcome to Loughton Karate Club where we practice the Wado Ryu style of karate with an emphasis on practical self-defence, not sport.

We're a family-friendly karate club based in Loughton, Essex in the UK. Founded in 2010 by Sensei Stephen O’Brien, we provide after-school clubs, evening and weekend classes, six days a week.

We offer discounts for families and multiple weekly training sessions. Your first trial session is free.

All levels are welcome. Children can start from 5 years old.
