Hi, I'm Mark Hudson and I am the Chief Instructor at Kaihatsu Karate Do.  The club is based in Red Street and Chesterton, Newcastle-under-Lyme and runs on both Monday and Tuesday nights for both Adults and Children.  We have a good mix of students and so far we have had a 100% grading pass rate.


Within this site you will find all the information you need to start your Karate training with the club.  Choosing the right club and with a competent Instructor is very important.  Hopefully the below points and the rest of the website will help you to make that choice - that Kaihatsu Do is the place for you...
