Proud to be the largest karate club in Northumberland - established since 1974. Affiliated with the KUGB.
Well done to our four KUGB England Squad members who represented their country at the Grand Slam today. Congratulations to Niamh Duddridge who placed third in Junior Female Kumite and Dylan Gibson who made the semi-finals of the Senior Male Kata #proudtobekugb#kugb#kugbfamily#grandslam#shotokan#oss#karate

This weekend is very busy with two events on for our club. Whilst most of our members will be training on Saturday morning, a few of our competitors will be competing in the 4th Gateshead Youth Championships.
On Sunday, we are hosting our club grading at Josephine Butler Campus with Sensei Andy Sherry, 9th Dan, where many students will be grading. A reminder that Sensei Sherry is not in the North East very often, so this is a fantastic opportunity for our members and other KUGB clubs to come along and train. Good luck to everyone grading! #proudtobekugb#kugbfamily#kugbkids
Sensei Jill and Dylan were presented with a certificate this afternoon for the funding we received from the Northumberland County Council Community Chest Scheme earlier this year.
