We train one night of the week, as described below: 

  Sunday 17:00 - 19:00  
  Coychurch Memorial Hall


  Juniors and Seniors  

We are now recruiting new students both Seniors & Juniors, and if you are interested please just turn up on Sunday evening.  We teach students from the age of 5 years old.

Beginners should wear loose clothing, such as jogging bottoms and a t-shirt.  If you wish to, a Karate Suit (Gi) can be purchased through the instructors.


It is important that you become a member of the BKK as soon as possible, not only for insurance cover but also to be able to enter BKK tournaments and other events.

Before you can attempt your first grading you must obtain your BKK licence and membership card, which is a simple process. Your club Instructor will give you the form which requires your name, address & date of birth.

The yearly membership fee differs depending on the date that you join the Club, and whether you are a Junior or Senior. The cost will be provided when you apply, with the form and a passport sized photograph being handed to your club Instructor.

Renewal of all licences is due on 31st January.

Each session only costs 2.50, and grading costs vary according to grade (see table below).



Kyokushinkai sets very high standards of training discipline and grading examination, and we are envied throughout the world for this reason.

Gradings take place every three months up to 3rd kyu, and you will only be allowed to take part in a grading when the instructors think that you are ready for it.  Also, you will never be forced into taking a grading when you do not wish to.

From 3rd kyu to 1st kyu, gradings can only be taken every six months.

To achieve the prestigious 1st dan black belt, the student must have trained as a 1st kyu for at least a year. Also, it is expected that the student must have trained for at least three years continuously and be over 14 years of age.
