VIDEO PAGE, Please take the time to explore some of the videos we have uploaded. Some are inspiring, some more for technical information to improve your own training. One or two are about our own club, but they are all great films that have been chosen carefully for their high quality martial arts content - Not Hollywood flash or MMA brutality, not to say there aren't some serious full contact fights.

Alan and Mike Dan grade success.

This film shows highlights from 20 rounds of sparring at one of our club Dan grades, some quite intense sparring can be seen and we are delighted that ALn and Mike were bith succesful in their grading. Well done.

WKF Highlights


The film opposite shows some really nice Karate Kumite (Tournament fighting)
Techniques that if executed well can be transferable into all arena's.
100 Man Kumite

This film shows the extent fighters some times go to achieve their goals. In this case a Kyokushin fighter who wishes to fight 100 Black belts consecutively.
Ouch
Jon's last competition at the age of 43

I entered the Shorai Open up in Bolton back in 2007 essentially to encourage the kids to have ago. I didn't do too badly and got a few points, in fact I think it was a narrow defeat of 8-7.

Kung Fu VS TaeKwonDo

TOP 10 FIGHTER
The great Ehsan Shafiq the fabulous Afgan Kung Fu master shown fighting a pretty amazing TaekwonDo fighter.
Sadly Ehsan is another great fighter to die young, he was just 36 years old.

In 2004 Jon Tilley, Shuko Karate senior instructor took his 3rd Dan, with Sensei Joe Tierney officiating. This film shows Jon fighting his friend Sensei Steve Fenwick from Shidokan Karate UK.

SELF DEFENCE
FUN

1st Kyokushin World Championships

This is a one and a half hour feature length documentary about the frst Kyokushin Knockdown Karate World Championships in Japan. I personally think it is fascinating - brutal and inspiring. I was shocked at the dedication of the fighters.

Charlotte's 2007 Tournament succes

Our very own Charlotte winning her 1st Tournament fight. Shuko Karate has not entered many tournaments. We have had several succesful adults, but Charlotte is still the only Shuko Kid to win a round at a tournament. Can you do better?

Kung Le Tribute.

TOP 10 FIGHTER

Cung Le is a new entrant to my Top 10, he has shown over 20 years that he is an awesome fighter. Well worth a little research on Youtube.

Kenji Midori ROUND HOUSE

This film is in Japanese, however it shows
the difference between the Karate snap round hous, compared to the swinging Thai kick. Both devastating, both effective, but there is a difference. It's worth developing both styles if you are interested in heavy contact fighting.

Andy Hug K1 PADWORK

TOP 10 FIGHTER

Andy sadly died at the age of 35, but if you check him out on Youtube you will see that his memory lives on. I have used these padwork routines at our club. Big power, great speed.

Knockdown Karate VS Kung Fu

Which is better, there's only one to find out !! FIGHT
Well, neither is better of course, these two young fighters are both awesome. To fight full contact in front of 1000's of spectators at 12 - 13 years old. WOW. On this occasion I agree with the judges that Kung Fu gets the decision.

THE GREAT ALFIE LEWIS

TOP 10 FIGHTER
I did my Dan grade under Alfie Lewis and saw him fight many times. He never was and probably wouldn't claim to be a saint, but when it comes to fighting he was awesome. Some question whether Alfie could have gone full contact, believe me he could.

Andy Hug K1 TRIBUTE

TOP 10 FIGHTER

Andy sadly died at the age of 35, but if you check him out on Youtube you will see that his memory lives on. I have used these padwork routines at our club. Big power, great speed.

Cage fighting - MICHAEL PAGE

Many people over the years have suggested that Freestye Karate is not a real fighting art and would not transfer into full contact or streetwork. Alfie Lewis or Joe Tierney may discuss this with you at close quaters, and Michael Page will welcome you into his Cage to explain the effectiveness of Freestyle.

SHUKO KARATE BOARD BREAKING

Just a quick film of me, breaking a couple of boards. For your interest I break the first board with a traditional ball of the foot roundhouse.
