We have been teaching traditional Karate since 1992 and we pride ourselves in having a truly in depth knowledge of both the martial arts and modern teaching methods.
The teachers at the school are fully qualified and all of our black belts are registered with the Okinawa Karatedo Shorinryu Ryukyukan Karate Kobudo Federation, Okinawa, Japan. We are committed to helping you reach black belt excellence, we will do everything in our power to assist and encourage you if you too are committed to this goal.
From years of experience we know that the best way to get someone to black belt status is to build up a series of attainable short-term goals. These are the various belt promotions or gradings you will take on your journey towards your black belt. Although the gap between a beginner and black belt can feel immense, the jump to your first belt (yellow) is a realistic goal of around 12 weeks. By constantly setting and reaching these smaller goals we develop as martial artists and as human beings.
What Theme Customers Say?
"Having been a member of the same gym for several years I was skeptical of joining a new one. I was determined to make changes to my body so decided to try something new and visit E4 Fitness. From my first visit here I knew this was the place where I could reach my goals and finally step out of my comfort zone, so I signed up! One of the main benefits of being a member here are the staff and other members. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful, nothing is to much trouble. Members here motivate and encourage one another. I myself am not the most knowledgeable person on fitness/exercise so its extremely comforting to know that I can ask for help if I need it! Having that extra support system has made coming to the gym a less daunting experience for me!Abi, 20, Highams Park
E4 Health and fitness has been the pinnacle of my martial arts, fitness and bodybuilding hobby for the past 6 years and I believe the length of time I have devoted to this single place should say everything for me. The gym itself has a positive vibe between users with no egos involved, I think this is primarily down to the management style here which comes across as a kind, friendly attitude with more than enough time to talk to all customers and building up healthy relationships with everyone. - member for 6 yearsNathan, 23, Walthamstow
