Founded in 1993 by Sensei Colin Jones, 6th Dan. Nippon UK has grown to become one of the UK’s largest family martial arts organisations.
Having been part of the club since 2007, Sensei Peter & Katheryne Sharples are now the proud owners of Nippon UK Martial Arts.
Our aim is to bring together groups of children and adults, to experience the benefits of studying a variety of Martial Arts and fitness classes.
The team at Nippon UK are trained to the highest standards, from our dedicated volunteers and junior leaders, to our highest level coaches. All of our instructors are DBS checked, fully insured, trained in Level 3 Paediatric First Aid and Safeguarding Children.
We pride ourselves on our continuous internal training programme. Our Junior Leader Coaching Award Scheme is available to all children when they reach the grade of brown belt. To be considered as a Junior Leader, they must attend a coaching children in Martial Arts workshop. Once selected, the Junior Coach must complete 100 hours of practical coaching. This enables us to develop the Martial Arts teachers of tomorrow.
Our team endeavour to promote the underlying ethos of Martial Arts to all of its students.
To Stay Safe, Be Healthy and to promote Respect, Discipline and Teamwork
We have been developing and improving our Syllabus system for almost 25 years now, for Adults and Children alike.
Our Grading days take place 4 times a year and are fantastic events! They test the students ability, determination and stamina.
Giving family members the opportunity to watch them progress to their next belt level and see what can be achieved, in such a short space of time.
