Elite Karate Centres in Sheffield

Elite Karate Centres are a Shukokai Karate training School, founded in 2000 by professional karate instructor Steve Hegarty 5th Dan. Our sessions at Elite Karate Centres teach both adults & children aged 6yrs upwards and are based around Sheffield, UK. All our centres provide a safe, fun environment in which to learn.

Karate teaches respect, discipline, concentration, self defence and self control. We are a friendly club that welcome all abilities so give it a try, your first lesson is free!The art of karate also develops and enhances physical abilities that would take a multitude of sports to develop. Students improve balance, hand-eye and hand-foot coordination, flexibility muscle tone, cardio-vascular/fitness timing and rhythm. All that and you’ll learn self defence as well.

Elite Karate Centres is affiliated to Seishin-do Shukokai Karate (www.sskarate.co.uk) who in turn are members of the World Union of Karate-Do Federation (www.wukf-karate.org)
