About us

Felixstowe Karate Club was founded in 1974 and classes are held for men, women and children at Felixstowe Academy.


Since starting we have been fortunate enough to train many new men, women and children up to black belt standard.  Some of our members with a keen interest to compete have also entered into both local and national Karate competitions and have been very succesfull winning trophies and medals at many different levels. As a direct result of this some of our members have even attained National Champion status within our governing association.


The club has seven blackbelt instructors, Paul Mortimore 4th Dan, Joe Stabb 2nd Dan, Steve Thorne 2nd Dan, Cloe Purcell 2nd Dan, Callum Lightbody 1st Dan and two juniors, Ashley Colborne 1st Dan and Joe Wray 1st Dan.


Our instructors are dedicated to improving the skills and ability of its members by offering help and encouragment to both beginners and more experianced students.
