ABOUT OUR CLUB
Our Club was established by Sensei Charles and Sensei Dot Naylor in 1967 and we are proud to be affiliated to the KUGB (the Karate Union of Great Britain), the UK’s largest single style Karate Organisation.
Our Chief Instructors, Sensei Jane Naylor-Jones (6th Dan) and Sensei Richard Naylor-Jones (6th Dan), are Long Standing Members of the KUGB, qualified KUGB Instructors, Senior Assessors, and are fully DBS checked. They are supported by a team of qualified Black Belt Instructors. Together we are committed to the highest standard of teaching.
Anyone from age 4 years old and upwards, with no upper age limit for adults, can start learning Karate with us.
At Chelmsford Karate Club we stress the importance of true Karate spirit to our students and, to this end, emphasis is always placed on the development of the disciplines of Character, Sincerity, Effort, Etiquette and Self Control. It is because of this training that our students attain such high standards, both in and out of the Dojo.

Training and Kyu Grading
We are very excited to be able to hold our next grading at the newly built Sports Hall at Chelmsford County High School for Girls (Chelmsford CM1 1RW)
Our Grading Examiner will be Sensei Frank Brennan who is known world-wide. His reputation as a competitor preceeded him and he was the man the JKA Team trained to beat at the 1990 World Championships.
Expert at both Kata and Kumite, he has been KUGB Grand Champion more times than anyone and, we suspect, he doesn't have room for all the trophies he has won over the years.
As an Instructor, his thoughtful approach and excellent explanations of techniques, mindset and strategy are very much in demand so we are always proud and privileged to be able to host him.
