"Never give up! Failure and rejection are only the first step to succeeding."
Sankukai Karate was devised by Yoshinao Nanbu. An incredibly dynamic individual who won many Karate championships in Japan. He toured extensively, teaching his style of Karate throughout the world for many years. Sankukai roughly translated means evasion – surely an excellent concept for self-defence! Karate at Rob Lock’s Academy comprises self-defence, pad work, a grading system, an excellent ethic code for youngsters and adults alike and an attitude of ‘never give up’ that runs through the Academy.
