Students who attend the BKK Summer Camp will train with other World-Class instructors in all aspects of Kyokushin Karate – we have a focus on Kumite training (Fighting), whilst still maintaining excellent Kihon (Basics), Kata, Self Defence and Fitness sessions.

Adults & Children Welcome!
The BKK Senior Camp is for ages 16+. The BKK Junior Karate Camp for ages 8 upwards runs at the same venue with dedicated children’s instructors at the same time as the senior camp. This year’s Junior camp instructors are GB Junior & Cadet Coach Sensei Chris Davies (4th Dan), England Junior & Cadet Coach Sensei Wai Cheung (4th dan) & Shihan Janine Davies (6th Dan – IFK World Kata Coach).

Grade At Camp
Participants of the British Karate Kyokushinkai Summer Camp have the opportunity to attempt a black belt dan grade under Hanshi Steve Arneil (10th Dan) and Shihan Liam Keaveney (7th Dan). The grading is usually held on the Thursday of Summer Camp and lasts most of the day.
