Here at Mishinrei we believe that all 3 of areas are of equal value as each other, for example, the body cannot function without the mind, the mind needs spirit in order to keep on pushing forward and striving to the next challenge and the spirit needs the body in order to continue going forwards.
We welcome anybody through our doors no matter what sex or creed, experienced practitioner or complete novice looking for a new hobby. We are dedicated to the way of karate and teach not only kicking and punching techniques but also discipline, breathing, self awareness, team building, fitness, confidence……..the list goes on.
Our style is rooted with Shotokan under the guidance of Kawasoe Masoe Sensei 8th Dan of the JKA and UKTKF. This said, however, we welcome all aspects of martial arts into our dojo and maintain an open mind. Our instructor Sensei Russell himself has been training since 1989 in various arts throughout the years, never believing in a superior art but a superior being. Thus he continues to experiment with new philosophies and ideas, never satisfied that he has reached anywhere near his capabilities, not only physically but mentally too. These are the foundations upon what he teaches his students.
