Welcome to the Omoiyari Karate School.

Omoiyari is a Japanese word for being mindful and thoughtful, which is emphasised to the children on a daily basis for being the key to a happier, successful and more prosperous life.

Sensei James who runs the school in Balham and Southfields has twenty years of experience in both teaching and competing in karate. He is trained by former England International Sensei John Sideras who coached James from white all the way up to black belt and when he was competing all over the country becoming a multiple national medalist at the official English Championships with the former EKGB ( English Karate Governing Body.)

Between Sensei James and his colleagues, with their vast experience have coached children up to become British and National Champions and medalists and are still working hard with their students to teach them valuable life skills that will stay with them forever.
