Kyokushinkai Karate return to Sittingbourne
Back in the 1970’s and 1980’s this style of Karate was very popular in the town but as years went by the various clubs closed. Now we are lucky to have a new club for Adults which is on a Saturday 1pm at Swale Martial Arts Club East Street Sittingbourne
Darren Murphy is the Club Instructor and you can see by his CV his pedigree is excellent. Anyone interested in this unique style of Karate should contact Darren on “firstname.lastname@example.org”
