About Us

Just Karate offers family friendly training online for ages 5+ to adults

Our Background

Just Karate was founded in 2003 and is based in Cambridge, UK. The founders Ashley Martin and Nita Martin wanted to create a family friendly karate training environment that was fun and inclusive. The founders both trained to black belt with Sensei Enoeda of the JKA.

Karate Style

We teach the traditional and most popular form of karate called Shotokan. This form uses deep and long stances to enable powerful movement. Training is split into three components: Kihon (basics), Kata (forms) and Kumite (sparring). We take students from beginner level all the way to black belt and beyond.

Syllabus Books

We recommend that all students have a copy of the syllabus book relevant to their grade to supplement their training in the dojo.

The Shotokan Karate Bible covers the grading requirements for white belt to shodan black belt.
The Advanced Shotokan Karate Bible covers the grading requirements for black belts training for their Nidan grading.
Yoga for Flexibility, Strength and Balance covers exercises for improving flexibility that will ultimately improve your karate technique.

All books have been written by Just Karate Instructors.
