The British Karate Kyokushinkai was established in 1965 and has seen steady progression in size and ability of one of the most respected karate organisations in Britain. One major reason for this progression lies in the personality and drive of chief instructor Hanshi Steve Arneil, 10th Dan. His depths of knowledge and tireless efforts have developed the unity of the British Karate Kyokushinkai.
