Meiyo Karate Club, JKR-UK, North Nottingham, Martial Arts UK, Self Defence

Welcome to the Meiyo - Nottingham - Karate Club website. The term 'Meiyo' (pronounced 'Meh-yo') means 'Honour' or 'Honourable' depending on how it is used in the Japanese language. The club is affiliated to the JKR-UK.

We study Shindo Jinen Ryu - a cross-training system incorporating elements of Karate-jutsu, Akaijutsu, Kenjutsu and Jujutsu with a strong emphasis on self defence - under the guidance of Sensei Simon Oliver 7th Dan. Sensei Oliver assesses all of our Kyu grade students. All of our Dan grade candidates are assessed by Sensei Yamazaki 9th Dan.

All our instructors are DBS checked and all have First Aid qualifications. Our Instructors are recognised by both National and International Governing bodies. We are unpaid volunteers and we save the training fees to pay the club running costs. The rest of the money is saved to send a student to Japan when they gain
their first Black Belt.

We currently teach at Tesco Bulwell Extra & Bulwell Academy. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates etc:
